If you have a question about this talk, please contact Mustapha Amrani. The Mathematics of Liquid Crystals I will talk a bit about the approach to equilibrium in liquid crystal materials. And I shall talk about viscoelasticity equation and the connection of it to liquid crystal problems. The Ericksen-Leslie system plays an important row in describing the flow of nematic liquid crystal materials. Under Parodi’s relation, we have the global well-posedness and Lyapunov stability for the system near local energy minimizers. There also exist some similar results in Q-tensor theory and I am interested to find the relation between the two theories. Further, there shares some common traits in the Ericksen-Leslie system with the problem of the approach to equilibrium in nonlinear quasistatic viscoelasticity system. I will try to compare the two systems and list the difficulties that need to be solved.
