Özet

The nematic-smectic A tricritical phase transition has been studied in binary mixtures of liquid crystals. By making the analogy between the "quasi-binary" fluid mixture and binary mixture of liquid crystals, we adapt the thermodynamic model for fluid mixtures due to Griffiths to the case of mixtures of liquid crystals.
