Multiscale Modelling of Soft Matter: Faraday Discussions No 144


About this book

This volume focuses on multiscale modelling: crossing the boundaries from atomistic studies of relatively small systems, to tackle larger systems where the properties of interest can only be studied at longer distances and longer time-scales. Many of the ideas of multiscale modelling cross traditional boundaries and this meeting brought together scientists from several different fields of modelling to discuss state of the art modelling of membranes, colloids, polymers and proteins. The following themes were included in the discussion: - Polymers: including microphase separation and self-assembly - Colloids: including the prediction of phases and phase diagrams - Mesophases: including liquid crystals, novel phases, self-assembled structures and the links between molecular structure and bulk properties - Membranes: including collective processes in lipid and surfactant systems - Methodology for multiscale simulations: including methods for moving between scales and for bridging different time and length scales

Author information

Faraday Discussions documents a long-established series of Faraday Discussion meetings which provide a unique international forum for the exchange of views and newly acquired results in developing areas of physical chemistry, biophysical chemistry and chemical physics. The papers presented are published in the Faraday Discussion volume together with a record of the discussion contributions made at the meeting. Faraday Discussions therefore provide an important record of current international knowledge and views in the field concerned. The latest (2012) impact factor of Faraday Discussions is 3.82.
