Abstract: The reentrant, nematic to smectic A phase transition is shown to follow from the Landau theory if one assumes the existence of an optimum density for smectic ordering. The shape of the coexistence line in the P-T plane is fit exactly by this theory. The effects of concentration on reentrant behaviour are also explained.
