Molecular Dynamics and Modelling

mdm.jpgIn the broadest sense, molecular dynamics is concerned with particle motion which is inherent to many natural processes.

Examples: simple molecular vibrations, like bond stretching and angle bending.

Computational Engineering and Fluids

cef.jpgComputational engineering supports almost all branches of traditional engineering. Predicting what will happen, quantitatively, when fluids and gases flow, often with added complications such as: simultaneous flow of heat; mass transfer; chemical reaction; mechanical movement; stresses, etc.

Monte Carlo and Stochastic Methods

MCSS imageMonte Carlo methods provide approximate solutions to quantitative problems by inferring from samples produced through stochastic simulation. While the method itself is based on statistical simulation the problems solved can be both deterministic or probabilistic. A very popular Monte Carlo method is based on Markov chains and known as MCMC (Markov chain Monte Carlo).

Quantum Simulations

qs.jpgUltimately, quantum mechanics governs how the world around us evolves.

Thus we study quantum effects at the microscopic and mesoscopic levels and how these manifest themselves in macroscopic behavior.

Computation of Living Systems

CLS imageBiology as a quantitative science is more and more relying on large-scale computational approaches to understand the complex behaviour of living systems. This starts with investigations at the molecular level, continues to models of proteins, bio-polymers, cells and their dynamics and culminates in the simulation of whole habitats.

A number of interesting collaborations are also developing within the framework of the Warwick-Monash Alliance
These pages are intended to facillitate the growth of such collaborations by providing a collection point for joint activities and expressions of interest.
