Problems related to defects in nematic liquid crystals

Wednesday 9th January 2013 - 10:40 to 11:20
INI Seminar Room 1
We describe several problems involving defects in liquid crystals and a mathematical framework in terms of tensors or directors that allows us to analyze the nature of defects in energy minimizing configurations.
