Item description for Dynamics and Defects in Liquid Crystals: A Festschrift in Honor of Alfred Saupe by Patricia Cladis...

During his distinguished scientific career, Alfred Saupe made important contributions to liquid crystal research, laying the groundwork on which much of the current knowledge and research in the physics of liquid crystals is based. This volume features papers presented by Prof. Saupe's colleagues, students and friends at a festschrift in honor of his 70th birthday. In addition, a selection of Prof. Saupe's articles are reprinted in the original German and in English translation, offering the reader a unique opportunity to see both the early work of this important scientist and widespread effect of that work on later discoveries in liquid crystal physics.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dynamics and Defects in Liquid Crystals: A Festschrift in Honor of Alfred Saupe?

Key figure in Liquid Crystals  Jul 2, 2004
In 1958 Alfred Saupe wrote the first of many seminal papers on the physics of liquid crystals. The best known of his results is the Maier-Saupe theory of liquid crystal phase formation. Ever since, he has been one of the towering figures in this field. This book is a collection of papers in his honour.

Please note that there is some deliberate duplication in the text. Several of Saupe's papers are printed in the original German, with accompanying English translations. Papers by other authors are of recent vintage, and demonstrate the vast strides in the field, as well as the industrial importance of the subject.
