The Mathematics of Liquid Crystals

In this talk, I will first discuss how to describe elastic deformations in systems with partial translational orders and orientational orders. I will then discuss how to incorporate the effects of thermal and quenched fluctuations into elasticity theory. Finally I will address the anomalous elasticity of ideal nematic elastomers in presence of thermal as well as quenched fluctuations.

This talk is part of the Isaac Newton Institute Seminar Series series.
