Phase transitions in discotic liquid crystals are analysed in the Landau theory. Possible types of order in such systems are studied.

On analyse sur la base de la théorie de Landau les transitions de phases dans des cristaux liquides discotiques. On étudie les types d'ordre possibles dans ces systèmes.
