  • Abstract

Following the scalar auxiliary variable strategy, a linear semi-discrete scheme in time for the hydrodynamic Q-tensor model of liquid crystal polymers is developed. It is shown that the scheme is unconditionally energy stable and uniquely solvable. Numerical simulations show the decreasing energy and the second-order convergence.
