We’re delighted to announce the publication of a new paper in collaboration with Applied Mathematicians at Tufts, Oxford and Memorial University of Newfoundland. This paper considers the intriguing problem of cholesteric liquid crystals (that naturally form helical structures) in cylinders of elliptical cross section. The results illustrate a mathematical technique, referred to as deflation, that enables us to discover numerous solutions for this challenging problem.
The paper is published in Liquid Crystals and is available to everyone as an Open Access article.
