Surface waves in nematic liquid crystals / A. ,. Kalugin. // Vestnik Moskovskogo Universiteta. Seriya 1. Matematika. Mekhanika. 2012. № 3. P. 71-72 [Moscow Univ. Math. Bulletin. Vol. 72, N 2, 2017. P. 0].
The problem of small-amplitude harmonic wave propagation along the surface of a nematic liquid crystal is considered when the evolution of the orientation vector is specified by viscous stresses and the orientational elasticity can be ignored. An analytic solution and a dispersion relation are obtained in the case of the planar and homeotropic initial orientation of this vector.
Key words: surface waves, nematic liquid crystals.
