Abstract

I will attempt to traverse the road from basic equations of molecular dynamics at the microscopic level to PDE dynamics at the level of coarse-grained order parameters, trying to clearly capture approximations and simplifications made along the way. My primary goal is to understand the relation of various mathematical frameworks to real liquid crystalline systems and to establish quantities most suitable for analysis of critical phenomena, defects, and symmetries in liquid crystalline systems.
