Abstract: A theological model for rodlike polymers in the nematic liquid-crystalline phase is analyzed to characterize irregular dynamical response under pure shear flows. The model is studied with a continuation approach, and a period doubling scenario is detected. Time series generated via simulation are studied with nonlinear analysis tools to prove the existence of chaotic regimes.
