Abstract: We study the problem of the Fréedericksz transition under a rotating magnetic field by using a dynamical model which incorporates thermal fluctuations into the whole set of nematodynamic equations. In contrast to other geometries, nonuniform textures in the plane of the sample do not appear favored. The proper consideration of thermal noise enables us to describe the dynamics of orientational fluctuations both below and above the shifted instability.
