This is a new and greatly revised edition of Professor Chandrasekhar's classic book Liquid Crystals, first published in The subject of liquid crystals has grown into an exciting interdisciplinary research field with important practical applications. The first of the experimental chapters, chapter 2, presents experiments that demonstrate a small part of a rich phenomena characteristic of liquid crystals using liquid crystals experiments represent the main part of the textbook. All of the experiments can be performed by simple means and are accessible to any modestly equipped school. A particularly strong focus is on colloidal liquid crystals, where particles, bubbles or drops are dispersed in a liquid crystal phase. The liquid crystal can act as a host phase, with the inclusions constituting foreign guests that disturb the local order in interesting ways, often resulting in large-scale positional arrangement and/or uniform. Liquid crystals (LCs) are a state of matter which has properties between those of conventional liquids and those of solid instance, a liquid crystal may flow like a liquid, but its molecules may be oriented in a crystal-like way. There are many different types of liquid-crystal phases, which can be distinguished by their different optical properties (such as textures).

This new and greatly revised edition of Professor Chandrasekhar's classic book Liquid Crystals () presents a systematic and self-contained treatment of the physics of the different types of thermotropic liquid crystals--the three classical types, nematic, cholosteric and smectic, composed of rod-shaped molecules, and the newly discovered discotic type composed of disc . Spherical confinement of nematic liquid crystals leads to the formation of equilibrium director field configurations that include point and line defects. Driving these materials with flows or dynamic fields often results in the formation of alternative metastable states. In this article, we study the effect of magnetic field alignment, both under static and dynamic conditions, of .
