And pearl and crystal shining bright,
And within it opens into a world
And a little lovely moony night.

And summer winds the stillness broke,
The crystal icicle is hung.

The proof depends on Lemma 6.7, which says that isomorphisms of crystals give the correspondence of labels of a simple HΛ n -module, which is labelled by various realizations of the crystal B (Λ).

The latter are broadened by molecular (vibrational) relaxation and by shape anisotropy. Nevertheless, weak van der Waals interactions are characteristic of both noble gas crystals and organic molecular crystals.

It turns out that the above purely mathematical ”toy” model is equivalent to the physical model of (2+1)dimensional polynuclear crystal growth, where the TW distribution describes the fluctuations of the number of the crystal mono-layers (see next subsection).
Universal Randomness
This is the model of polynuclear crystal growth (PNG) which describes the growth of the two-dimensional crystal monolayers in (2+1) dimensions.

A general description of the static theory of liquid crystals is given by Ericksen in [Er]. A liquid crystal is composed of rod like molecules which display orientational order, unlike a liquid, but lacking the lattice structure of a solid.
Global existence of solutions of the Liquid Crystal flow for the Oseen-Frank model
Since (1.4) is not parabolic, the system of the liquid crystal flow is complicated, so the question on global existence for the liquid crystal flow (1.4) for the Oseen-Frank model remains unresolved.

That phenomenon has led to a type of ‘polarization switching’ wherein the polymorph (crystal structure) of the nucleated crystal can be controlled by applying either linear or circular polarized light [2, 3].
A phenomenological theory of nonphotochemical laser induced nucleation
We determine the region of stability of the crystal phase, and also relate the frequency of its pinning mode to that of the corresponding electron crystal near integer fillings.
Static and Dynamic Properties of Type-II Composite Fermion Wigner Crystals
Our calculations also bring out certain puzzling features, such as a relatively small melting temperature for the composite fermion Wigner crystal, and also suggest a higher asymmetry between Wigner crystals of composite fermion particles and holes than that observed experimentally.
Static and Dynamic Properties of Type-II Composite Fermion Wigner Crystals
We will therefore label these crystals “type-I” and “type-II” Wigner crystals, respectively.

We have also investigated the effect of the random crystal field distribution characterized by two crystal field parameters D/J and △/J on the phase diagrams of the system.
Critical behavior and phase diagrams of a spin-1 Blume-Capel model with random crystal field interactions: An effective field theory analysis
In this section, we illustrate the phase diagrams and magnetization curves of the system with a dilute crystal field distribution defined in Eq.(2) where crystal field D is turned on, or turned off with probabilities p and (1 − p) on the lattice sites, respectively.
Critical behavior and phase diagrams of a spin-1 Blume-Capel model with random crystal field interactions: An effective field theory analysis
We note that random crystal field distribution given in Eq. (3) with D/J = 0 corresponds to a bimodal distribution function, while for △/J = 0, we obtain pure BC model with homogenous crystal field D/J .
