We propose a continuum model to describe the molecular alignment in thin nematic shells. By contrast with previous accounts, the two-dimensional free energy, aimed at describing the physics of thinâ€¦ (More)

Layered phases are a common pattern of self-organization for several soft materials. These phases undergo buckling instability when subjected to dilatative strain: beyond a critical threshold,â€¦ (More)

When nematic liquid crystals are constrained to a curved surface, the geometry induces distortions in the molecular orientation. The mechanisms of the geometrical frustration involve the intrinsic asâ€¦ (More)

When subjected to magnetic or electric fields, nematic liquid crystals confined between two parallel glass plates and initially uniformly oriented may undergo homogeneous one-dimensional spatialâ€¦ (More)

The equilibrium shapes of lipid vesicles are perturbed by rigid inclusions. In a two-dimensional vesicle, that may also model a cylindrically elongated tubule, the shape modifications can beâ€¦ (More)

We study the equilibrium shapes of a lipid membrane, attached to a fixed circular substrate. We show how the weakening of the boundary conditions is able to break the axial symmetry of the optimalâ€¦ (More)

We analyse the effects that the impermeability constraint induces on the equilibrium shapes of a three-dimensional vesicle hosting a rigid inclusion. A given alteration of the inclusion and/orâ€¦ (More)

Smectic-A liquid crystals are layered anisotropic materials with anisotropic dielectric features. In this paper we propose a non-linear model describing the static finite deformations induced in aâ€¦ (More)

Bifurcation phenomena of equilibrium states occur in both standard and complex materials. In this paper we study the equilibrium configurations close to a bifurcation point. In particular theâ€¦ (More)
