Liquid crystals at high dimensionality

H. O. Carmesin, H. L. Frisch, J. K. Percus

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


At high spatial dimensionality, a hard-rod fluid undergoes a first-order phase transition from isotropic to nematic phase at relatively low density. The orientational distribution function in the anisotropic phase takes the form exp[-±(1-2cos2)1/2].
