A note on a global strong solution to the 2D Cauchy problem of density-dependent nematic liquid crystal flows with vacuum
Comptes Rendus. Mathématique, Volume 356 (2018) no. 5, pp. 503-508.

In Li–Liu–Zhong (Nonlinearity 30 (2017) 4062–4088), the authors proved the existence of a unique global strong solution to the Cauchy problem of 2D nonhomogeneous incompressible nematic liquid crystal flows with vacuum as far-field density provided the initial data density and the gradient of orientation decay not too slow at infinity, and the basic energy ρ0u0L22+d0L22 is small. In this note, we aim at precisely describing this smallness condition.

Dans Li–Liu–Zhong (Nonlinearity 30 (2017) 4062–4088), les auteurs démontrent l'existence d'une unique solution forte globale au problème de Cauchy pour l'écoulement d'un cristal liquide nématique, incompressible, non homogène, bidimensionnel, avec vide. Ce résultat est valide dans la mesure où la densité initiale donnée et le gradient de dérive d'orientation ne sont pas trop lents à l'infini et l'énergie de base ρ0u0L22+d0L22 est petite. Le but de la présente Note est d'expliciter précisément cette dernière condition de petitesse.
