Abstract
Nematic liquid crystals are fluids whose anisometric molecules show long range orientational order but no positional order. The orientational order gives rise to anisotropic properties that have widely been exploited as the basis for liquid crystal display devices. The Ericksen-Leslie director theory has successfully been used to describe many dynamic properties of liquid crystals however there are situations in which a more complete description may be given in terms of the second rank traceless symmetric Q-tensor. The development of a liquid crystal device solver is described. The solver calculates the flow, director and order parameter fields in three-dimensio...
