Helical geometry of liquid crystals (LC) [1] has been proved very useful in the study of material science through the investigation of the so-called topological defects , disclinations linked in general to curvature and dislocations connected with torsion of three-dimensional space. More recently R. Kamien [2] has recalled the fact that curved crystals in… CONTINUE READING
