PERIOD: MARCH Il corso sarà tenuto dal prof. Pep Espanol - Universidad Nacional de Educacion a Distancia Summary: In this course we present in detail the fundamentals of the theory of coarse-graining, explore different applications that range from thermodynamics of small systems to fluctuating hydrodynamics and complex fluids (colloidal suspensions and other viscoelastic fluids), and describe particle-based simulation methodologies like DPD and SDPD for the simulation of complex fluids.
