More information on liquid crystal

The realization of this tutorial has been done mainly based on my own knowledge and the introduction of my Ph.D. thesis. Further ideas I found on the internet and in literature as listed in the references below. Extra information on different aspects and applications of liquid crystals can be found in our liquid crystal glossary, the research pages or our publications. Other existing webpages and books can be very useful for additional information. Here's a list of webpages and books where more information can be found.
