Soft Matter Physics: Computer Simulations and Theory

Soft matter has become an essential part of modern technology (including responsive and bio-mimicking materials, pharmaceutics, complex fluids, soft lithography, photonics, etc.). The physics of these materials is complex and diverse. I’ll briefly introduce different areas of Soft Matter physics and discuss the specifics of behavior of these systems. The rich behavior of soft matter systems makes computer modeling especially desirable, as one can select the appropriate resolution level of the model and can test different analytical models or hypothesis by considering limits. I’ll briefly introduce different computer modeling approaches that we use in my group and discuss several examples of recent work by my graduate students. I will also outline developing new projects, some in collaboration with experimental groups. I welcome questions and discussion during the seminar, so please do not hesitate to interrupt me and ask questions.
