Beschreibung

This SpringerBrief covers the main scales of description of matter, starting at its finest level, the quantum scale, moving through ab-initio, molecular dynamics, coarse grained approaches, to finish at the scale of kinetic theory models that allows a nice compromise between the rich but expensive microscopic descriptions and the computationally cheap but sometimes too coarse macroscopic descriptions. The book addresses undergraduate and graduate students, as well as beginners in multi-scale modeling of materials.



Provides a comprehensive introduction to different models for the fine description of matter, from quantum scale to kinetic theory descriptions

Especially emphasises kinetic theory descriptions of complex fluids, polymers and suspensions

Achieves a good balance between rigor and simplicity

Includes supplementary material: sn.pub/extras
