Nematic liquid crystal polymers and nanocomposites have wide-ranging applications in modern technology including display devices, ultra-fast switches, high strength fibers, and materials with enhanced multi-functional properties including thermal, dielectric, electrical, and barrier properties. In this review article we provide an overview of selected mathematical issues and numerical simulations of nematic liquid crystal polymers and rigid rod nanocomposites. Some open questions will be addressed.
