Convergence problems in nematic liquid crystal flows
Zoom Meeting ID: 896-3596-0133
Time: 11:00AM--12:00PM, 10 May 2021 (AEST).
Abstract: In this talk, we will discuss the Oseen-Frank and Landau-de Gennes
theories for uniaxial nematic liquid crystal flows. Firstly, we prove the smooth
convergence of the Ginzburg-Landau approximation to the hydrodynamic flow of the
Oseen-Frank energy known as the Ericksen-Leslie system. We then study a limiting
problem of the Landau-de Gennes energy via a connection with the Oseen-Frank energy.
This is the first talk in a series.
