Boundary-roughness effects in nematic liquid crystals

Date: 
Tuesday 21st May 2013 - 16:00 to 16:20
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
Paolo Biscari and Stefano Turzi considered a plate with an undulatory pattern. They replace the corrugation with sinusoidal boundary conditions, and use formal asymptotics for the analysis. I would like to use the method of gamma convergence to determine the effective energy and its minimizers for this problem.
