The physics of unphysical simulations

Frenkel, D (University of Cambridge)
Monday 18 March 2013, 09:50-10:40

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


Simulations 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.
