Molecular simulation of liquid crystals: progress towards a better understanding of bulk structure and the prediction of material properties.

Abstract

This tutorial review covers recent progress in the field of computer simulation of liquid crystals. The development of the main "molecular-based" models for liquid crystals is described. These include lattice models, coarse-grained single site models based on hard and soft interaction potentials, atomistic models and multi-site coarse-grained models. A… (More)
