Zusammenfassung: 
The linearized Ericksen-Leslie differential equations, which couple fluid motion and director reorientation to each other, are reduced to a set of time varying differential equations for two pulsed optical waves incident at an angle upon a homeotropically orientated liquid-crystal cell. The differential equations are solved by a numerical method. The fluid velocity and the director angle are plotted as a function of space and time. It is shown that the reaction of fluid motion upon director reorientation is small.
