FIG. 1.

Probability distribution for defects in a 2D nematic of spherocylinders of aspect ratio on the surface of a sphere of diameter at chemical potential , 2.0, and 3.0.

Image of FIG. 2.
FIG. 2.

Snapshots of two common configurations observed during the simulations of spherocylinders on the surface of a sphere. For clarity, in each case the sphere is cut through its center perpendicular to the viewing direction, and the top and bottom hemispheres shown separately from the same viewing point. The small black spheres indicate the positions of the defects as determined by the location algorithm.
