Introduction to Liquid Crystals


      This is a very introductory look at liquid crystals, meant mostly to clear up a little bit of the phase nomenclature for the non-specialist. I hope it is found to be useful. Special thanks go out to Prof. Derek Gray, since much of the information presented here is based on his class notes.
