Theory Seminar: Thomas Machon (Bristol), Topology and broken translational symmetry: two liquid crystalline case studies and some general results

-
Location: PS1.28

We study the topology of smectic defects in two and three dimensions. We give a topological classification of smectic point defects and disclination lines in three dimensions. In addition we describe the combination rules for smectic point defects in two and three dimensions, showing how the broken translational symmetry of the smectic confers a path dependence on the result of defect addition.
