SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND

In recent years, multiscale modeling of complex fluids has attracted a great deal of attention from several disciplines, including chemical physics, chemical engineering and applied mathematics.
Typical examples involve polymer solutions and melts, colloidal systems, surfactant solutions, particulate systems, suspensions (aggregate systems, liquid crystals) etc.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together people from these different disciplines, to discuss mathematical modeling and computational approaches which play a central role, allowing a systematic investigation of the phenomena taking place at different length and time scales associated with the dynamics of complex fluids.

GOALS

  • This workshop is designed to bring together people from these different disciplines, to exchange ideas, discuss issues of common interest, and identify where the challenges are.
  • In particular we will explore approaches targeting the passage from microscopic to mesoscopic and macroscopic level of description, as well as the consideration of any regularization techniques that allow the coarsening in the mathematical description and/or numerical implementation to take place.
  • Primary examples will be polymeric fluids and liquid crystal polymers.
  • Further, complex interactive phenomena that give rise to internal material discontinuities and inhomogeneities will also be of interest.
