Developments in the Theory of Smectic Liquid Crystals

Randy Kamien (University of Pennsylvania)

The theory of liquid crystals combines principles of symmetry, geometry, and topology to understand materials that exhibit compelling, complex configurations and textures.  In this talk I will provide an overview of the theory of smectic liquid crystals and will show how it touches on superconductivity, fluid mechanics, and special relativity.
