Some remarks on mathematical theories of liquid crystals

Presented by: 
John Ball Heriot-Watt University
Thursday 16th May 2019 - 11:50 to 12:30
INI Seminar Room 1
The talk will concern two different topics. First a quick new proof will be given of a result of Fatkullin & Slastikov (2005), Liu, Zhang & Zhang (2005) (see also Zhou et al (2005)), to the effect that stationary solutions to the Onsager equation with the Maier-Saupe interaction are radially symmetric. Second, a description will be given of joint work with Lu Liu on exterior problems in the 2D one-constant Oseen-Frank theory.
