To create a hybrid-aligned structure of a dual-frequency nematic liquid crystal (LC), we have obtained an approximate analytical solution of the system of equations that describes the dynamics of reorientations of the director under the action of a control electric signal of an arbitrary shape. Formulas obtained have been used to simulate a symmetric optical response of the LC structure for a sinusoidal electric pulse. It has been shown that, in terms of the used approximations, the results of the analytical calculation agree well with results of computer simulation and with experiment in the case of small deformations of the LC layer.
