| This lecture provides an in-depth view of some of the mathematical aspects of liquid crystals. In addition to researchers interested in this area, graduate students or advanced undergraduates find this lecture accessible. (Boulder, CO, 1989) Reviews "This fascinating lecture leads from an observation in physics to a very interesting, deep mathematical treatise in which variational calculus, nonlinear PDEs, degree theory, and differential geometry are naturally combined." *-- Mathematical Reviews* |
