• #### Liquid crystal defects in the Landau–de Gennes theory in two dimensions — Beyond the one-constant approximation ﻿

(2016-12-31)
We consider the two-dimensional Landau-de Gennes energy with several elastic constants, subject to general $k$-radially symmetric boundary conditions. We show that for generic elastic constants the critical points consistent ...
