Background and activities
Applied nonequilibrium statistical mechanics
Theory and modelling -- tribology, surface science, transport properties, nonlinear dynamics, condensed matter
- molecules and nanoscale objects on surfaces, especially in the context of friction, and
- gases and liquids of various levels of complexity.
We employ computational as well as analytical methods to solve applied and fundamental problems. We collaborate with experimental as well as theoretical researchers from a wide variety of fields, ranging from chemical engineering to mathematical physics. More details below.
