ABSTRACT OF THE TALK
Doi-Onsager model and Ericksen-Leslie model are two important models for describing the nematic liquid crystal flows. They are derived from different viewpoints and both widely used theoritically and numerically. In this talk, we will discuss the relationship between these two models. We will prove that, as the Deborah number, an important scaleless parameter goes to zero, the solution of Doi-Onsager system will converge to the solution of Ericksen-Leslie system.
