Numerical Studies of Fluids and Disordered Solids

These researchers are continuing their computational research in the fields of electrochemical interfaces, disordered polymers, Bose condensed systems, and statistical mechanical models of the origin of life. The computational methods used include direct dynamics, classical molecular dynamics, hydrodynamics, continuum mechanics, and Monte Carlo simulation. The group is developing several new methods, including self-consistent tight binding molecular dynamics and temporally renormalized molecular dynamics, in the course of this research.
