  • Fried, Eliot (Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 2006-06)
    We present a sharp-interface theory for phase transformations between the isotropic and uniaxial nematic phases of a flowing liquid crystal. These equations include a supplemental interface condition which expresses the ...
