Title: CONTINUOUS-MODEL DESCRIPTION OF LAYER FLUCTUATIONS IN FINITE SMECTIC SYSTEMS
Abstract: The correlation function for the layer displacement in a finite smectic is calculated using t continuous model. The results are compared the predictions of the discrete model of layer fluctuations and a of only a few percent is found. Additionally, the deformations of the smectic film are discussed. The increase the average layer spacing by about 3\%. the areal density in the smectic layer and also the temperature of the Kosterlitz-Thouless phase transition decrease.
