Thin film models for active liquid crystals

Presented by:

Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
Active liquid crystals - or active polar gels - have been discussed as a model for cell-motion induced by the cytoskeleton. We discuss the derivation of a thin film model based on the Beris-Edwards theory for liquid crystals.
