Solitons in Liquid Crystals by L. Lam, J. Prost (auth.), Lui Lam, Jacques Prost (eds.)

By L. Lam, J. Prost (auth.), Lui Lam, Jacques Prost (eds.)

Solitons are a widely known and fascinating point of nonlinear habit in a continuing procedure resembling a fluid: a wave propagates throughout the medium with no distortion. Liquid crystals are hugely ordered structures with out a inflexible, long-range constitution. Solitons in liquid crystals (sometimes often called "walls") have a large choice of exceptional houses which are changing into very important for functional purposes reminiscent of electroluminescent exhibit. This e-book, the 1st assessment of the topic to be released, comprises not just surveys of the prevailing literature, yet offers new effects as well.
