Theoretical Physics with Focus on Complex Fluids

Seminar Statistical Physics of Complex Fluids

In the seminar, new developments in the field of statistical physics of complex fluids are introduced and current research of our group is presented.

Our focus lies on

  •  Non-Markovian systems
  •  Structure formation and phase transitions (in external fields)
  •  Driven systems
  •  Active matter and microswimmers
  •  Stochastic thermodynamics
  •  Control strategies
  •  New concepts of theoretical modelling
  •  Nucleation and growth processes
  •  Computer simulations

Students, who are interested in a Bachelor or Master thesis within our group and/or require a seminar certificate (5 Leistungspunkte), are highly welcome to join!

Dates summer semester 2022

Time: Wednesday, 4:15 - 5:45 pm, in room EW 733

The seminar is offered in a hybrid format. The seminar plan and Zoom link can be found in ISIS.
