Abstract:
The basic physics and the theoretical treatment of transport processes and nonequilibrium
orientational phenomena are presented for nano-rod fluids and liquid crystals.
Equations governing the viscous flow, the flow-birefringence and the dynamics of
orientational order parameters, like the alignment tensor, are derived and discussed. The
equations are applied to systems where a steady driving force leads to a periodic or
chaotic response.
