The physics of unphysical simulations
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
AbstractSimulations are patient. In particular, they can be used to model systems that are interesting but `unrealistic'. In fact, from the time of Onsager onwards, unphysical limits have played a key role in our understanding of lyotropic liquid crystals. Interestingly, simulations allow us to probe interesting limits that are inaccessible to experiments.
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
