Abstract

We find some interesting defect configurations in nematic, smectic and discotic liquid crystals in the presence of a magnetic field. We consider both positive and negative anisotropy materials subjected to a uniform or an all circular magnetic field. We have undertaken an energy analysis of many of these configurations.
