This thesis considers the mathematical modelling of smectic A liquid crystals under the application of certain external influences, using the recently developed continuum dynamic theory for smectic A liquid crystals by Stewart (2007). This theory is used extensively throughout and is of crucial importance when determining our results in a variety of situations.
