English abstract:
Our aim is to simulate a nonlinear system of ODEs describing the flow in smectic liquid crystals. The nonlinear system is first linearized. We present a direct approach to compute the exact analytic solution of this linear system and use this solution as a starting profile in the Matlab package bvpsuite2.0 to obtain the ap-proximate solution to the nonlinear system. Although, the solution of the nonlinear system has steep boundary layers and therefore is difficult to resolve, we demon-strate that bvpsuite2.0 can cope with the problem and provide an approximation with reasonable accuracy.
