Ginzburg-Landau model

Thursday, March 1, 2018 - 3:30pm - 4:20pm
Michal Kowalczyk (University of Chile)
In this talk I will discuss qualitative properties of global minimizers of the Ginzburg-Landau energy which describes light-matter interaction in the theory of nematic liquid crystals near the Friedrichs transition. This model depends on two parameters: ɛ>0 which is small and represents the coherence scale of the system and a≧ 0 which represents the intensity of the applied laser light.
