In this paper, we study the new Q-tensor model previously derived from Onsager's molecular theory byHan et al. [Arch. Rational Mech. Anal., 215 (2015), pp. 741--809] for static liquid crystalmodeling. Taking density and Q-tensor as order parameters, the new Q-tensor model not only characterizesimportant phases while capturing density vari...More
