A heat flow problem from Ericksen’s model for nematic liquid crystals with variable degree of orientation
Pages: 411 – 433
We study a heat flow problem for nematic liquid crystals with variable degree of orientation which is basically the harmonic heat flow into the round cone with a lower order term.
The research is supported in part by the NSC (Taiwan) grant 103-2115-M-194-007.
