## Defects in Liquid Crystals: Computer Simulations, Theory and ExperimentsOleg Lavrentovich, Paolo Pasini, Claudio Zannoni, Slobodan Zumer Topological defects are the subject of intensive studies in many different branches of physics ranging from cosmology to liquid crystals and from elementary particles to colloids and biological systems. Liquid crystals are fascinating materials which present a great variety of these mathematical objects and can therefore be considered as an extremely useful laboratory for topological defects. This book is the first attempt to present together complementary approaches to the investigations of topological defects in liquid crystals using theory, experiments and computer simulations. |
