Institute for Computational Physics (ICP)

Welcome to the home page of the

We use high-performance computing on supercomputers and parallel clusters to solve complex problems in physics that would otherwise be impossible to solve via analytical methods. Our main research areas are presently to understand the physics of soft matter systems in general, with a particular emphasis on charged systems like polyelectrolytes, charged colloids, ferrofluids and ionic liquids. In addition we are interested in various biophysical problems. The simulations are performed on parallel computers with help of the simulation package ESPResSo, and we continue to develop algorithms for long range interactions.


Another focus of our research are transport and relaxation in disordered systems such as anomalous diffusion, glasses or geometry, flow and transport phenomena in porous media. Our methods are not only computer simulations, but we apply also fractional calculus, numerical methods, stochastic processes, density functional methods, and other approaches of statistical physics.
