Revised: 14 June 2010
Numerical approximation of the flow of liquid crystals governed by the Ericksen-Leslie equations is considered. Care is taken to develop numerical schemes which inherit the Hamiltonian structure of these equations and associated stability properties. For a large class of material parameters compactness of the discrete solutions is established which guarantees convergence.
