Introduction to Pattern Formation in Nonequilibrium Systems

  • Lorenz Kramer
  • Agnes Buka
Part of the Partially Ordered Systems book series (PARTIAL.ORDERED)

Abstract

After a brief introduction into the subject a simple one-dimensional model is presented to illustrate typical features of pattern forming systems and to demonstrate the linear stability analysis. The special features of liquid crystals are outlined and two particular topics are discussed: transient patterns in the Freédericksz transition and patterns obtained in rotating magnetic and electric fields.
