A model for describing properties of a liquid crystal display which combines the concepts of
in-plane switching and vertical alignment is proposed. There is good agreement between the results
of this model and direct computer calculation of the director and the light transmittance. The
usefulness of the model lies in the faster speed of calculations compared to direct computer solution
of the Euler­Lagrange equations. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.

I. INTRODUCTION
Recently several new types of liquid crystal displays
LCDs with wide viewing angles, good color characteristics,
and fast response times were proposed. Among them are a
device associated with a homeotropic to multidomainlike
HMD transition,1,2
a liquid crystal LC cell with pat-
terned electrodes,3
