Paper Abstract

Analytical expressions are obtained for spatial distribution of the director and the order parameter in a spherical nematic droplet, as well as for the shift of the phase transition temperature. The cases of small and large values of anchoring are considered. The Green''s function of order parameter fluctuation in isotropic phase is found.
