Description
Soft matter is the field of physics that concerns itself with systems that are deformable by energies on the scale of thermal fluctuations. This includes liquids, polymers, colloids, and much of biological physics. More recently, the sub-field of active matter has emerged, which studies the behavior of microswimmers and other self-propelled particles, including bacteria. While quantum phenomena are typically negligible at soft matter's relevant length scales (~1 µm), Brownian motion is important, while hydrodynamics and electrostatics play a role too. The interplay of these effects can lead to complex effects such as clustering or phase separation. In this seminar, we aim to provide an overview of the field, covering topics from hydrodynamics on small length scales, individual polymers and colloids and their dynamics all the way to the collective behavior of microswimmers and the interaction with their environment. The seminar will include analytical models that capture the essentials of the most important soft matter systems and state-of-the-art numerical methods that can solve the full physical problems.
Requirements
We expect the participants to have fundamental knowledge in classical and statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, electrodynamics, and partial differential equations.
