In this paper, we consider the short time classical solution to a simplified hydrodynamic flow modeling incompressible, nematic liquid crystal materials in dimension three. We establish a criterion for possible breakdown of such solutions at a finite time. More precisely, if (u,d) is smooth up to time T provided

A remark on blow up criterion of three-dimensional nematic liquid crystal flows

In this paper, we study the initial value problem for the three-dimensional nematic liquid crystal flows. Blow up criterion of smooth solutions is established by the energy method, which refines the

Blow up Criterion for Nematic Liquid Crystal Flows

In this paper, we establish a blow up criterion for the short time classical solution of the nematic liquid crystal flow, a simplified version of Ericksen–Leslie system modeling the hydrodynamic

Partial regularity of the dynamic system modeling the flow of liquid crystals

Here we established the partial regularity of suitable weak solutions to the dynamical systems modelling the flow of liquid crystals. It is a natural generalization of an earlier work of

Nonlinear theory of defects in nematic liquid crystals; Phase transition and flow phenomena

This is a summary of some recent mathematical advances in the theory of defects in nematic liquid crystals. It also includes some new results concerning disclinations (line defects) which have not

Nonparabolic dissipative systems modeling the flow of liquid crystals

We study a simplified system which retains most of the interesting mathematical properties of the original Ericksen-Leslie equations for the flow of liquid crystals. This is a coupled nonparabolic

Global existence of solutions of the simplified Ericksen–Leslie system in dimension two

In the 1960s, Ericksen and Leslie established the hydrodynamic theory for modelling liquid crystal flow. In this paper, we investigate a simplified model of the Ericksen–Leslie system, which is a

Remarks on the breakdown of smooth solutions for the 3-D Euler equations

The authors prove that the maximum norm of the vorticity controls the breakdown of smooth solutions of the 3-D Euler equations. In other words, if a solution of the Euler equations is initially
