A review is presented of molecular and mesoscopic computer simulations of liquid crystalline systems. Molecular simulation approaches applied to such systems are described and the key findings for bulk phase behaviour are reported. Following this, recently developed lattice Boltzmann (LB) approaches to the mesoscale modelling of nemato-dynamics are reviewed. The article concludes with a discussion of possible areas for future development in this field.
