Abstract

This article contains an overview of numerical simulations of phase transitions and critical phenomena in liquid crystals. After a brief description of the models studied in simulations and an elementary introduction to commonly used numerical methods, results obtained from existing numerical studies of phase transitions and critial phenomena in liquid crystals are reviewed and some directions for future work are suggested.
