Two Double Lectures and a Mini-workshop
Dissipative Particle Dynamics
- A Novel Mesoscopic Simulation Technique -

Thursday, 14 October 1999, 14:00-17:00
Tuesday, 26 October 1999, 14:00-17:00
Dr. Gerhard Besold

Beginning of November (to be announced later)

Technical University of Denmark, Building 206, Room 250

Dissipative Particle Dynamics (DPD) is a relatively new mesoscopic simulation technique which is particularly suited for computer simulation studies of morphological and rheological properties of complex fluids (colloidal systems, polymer solutions and melts).
In two double lectures the basic concepts of DPD will be discussed and illustrated by means of selected case studies.
Current research activities involving DPD simulations will be the issue of the mini-workshop following the two lectures (programme to be announced later). The lectures and the mini-workshop are aimed at graduate students of (bio-)chemistry, (bio-)physics, chemical engineering, and materials science.

Everyone who is interested is invited to participate in the lectures and the mini-workshop.
Registration is not necessary.
