Boundary Control of the Ericksen-Leslie System in Dimension Two

**Abstract:**In this talk, I will first discuss the initial-boundary value problem of the Ericksen-Leslie system for time-dependent boundary data of the nematic liquid crystal director field. I will present some result on the global existence in dimension two. Then I will describe an application to the optimal boundary control for such a system in dimension two.
