While the main focus of the book lies in flexoelectricity in nematic liquid crystals, peculiarities of other mesophases bent-core systems, cholesterics, and smectics are also reviewed. Flexoelectricity has relevance to biological living systems and can also offer possibilities for technical applications. The basics of these two interdisciplinary fields are also summarized.
