Title: On nematic liquid crystal flows in dimension three

 

Speaker : Changyou Wang (University of Kentucky)

 

Date: 11:00-12:00, May 30, 2014

 

Place: Conference Room A404, Department of Mathematical Sciences

 

Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss a simplified Ericksen-Leslie system modeling the hydrodynamic flow of nematic liquid crystals in dimension three, and present a new result on the existence of global weak solutions. This is a joint work with Fanghua Lin.
