Some examples of coarse-grained computation


Professor Yannis Kevrekidis

Princeton University

Abstract:   I will present and discuss some equation-free computational experiments, where short bursts of appropriately initialized "fine scale" simulations are used to obtain coarse-grained results. In particular, I will present coarse dynamic renormalization computations as well as the use of data mining techniques (diffusion maps) to extract good coarse-grained observables from fine scale simulation data. The illustrative applications will range from micelle formation computations to the collective motion of interacting particles.
