The programme of this book was projected in a survey written by J.L. Ericksen for SIAM News (see issue No. 4, November 1987). After a sentence inoculating the reader with the germs of hope: Clearly, [liquid crystals] are [materials] of growing importance from a technological point of view, and their development entails a healthy interaction between science and technology, Ericksen remarks that applied mathematicians should heed: To a large extent, the research has been done by non-mathemati­ cians. Frank Leslie, a mathematician who is weB known to workers in the field for his important contributions, is a notable exception. However, from a mathematical viewpoint, develop­ ment has been slow, aIthough the situation is beginning to change. This faint vein of optimism was justified by the outcomes of the pro­ gramme presented by J.L. Ericksen himself and D. Kinderlehrer as part of the activities during the academic year 1984-85 at the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications at Minneapolis. As Ericksen says, expert analysts were Ethen] introduced to and became fascinated with some of the [unsolved] issues. They have already proved deep and beautiful results with interesting physical implications. In particular, we are now seeing the rapid development of a mathematicaBy sound, nonlinear static theory of defects, some­ thing that does not exist for any other kind of material.

From the Back Cover:

Essentially there are two variational theories of liquid crystals explained in this book. The theory put forward by Zocher, Oseen and Frank is classical, while that proposed by Ericksen is newer in its mathematical formulation although it has been postulated in the physical literature for the past two decades. The newer theory provides a better explanation of defects in liquid crystals, especially of those concentrated on lines and surfaces, which escape the scope of the classical theory. The book opens the way to the wealth of applications that will follow.

Review:

"This book is a comprehensive and essentially self-contained presentation of the mathematical models which are curretly used in the description of liquid crystals." -Meccanic a
