The Mathematics of Liquid Crystals

We demonstrate that experimental data concerning the main phase transition in membranes can be rationalized in the framework of a theoretical scheme constructed in the spirit of the so-called weak crystallization theory. The scheme enables to explain a combination of seemingly contradictory features of the main phase transition: its first order nature and a well pronounced pre-transitional critical behaviour of various physical quantities.
