The physics of unphysical simulations

Date: 
Monday 18th March 2013 - 09:50 to 10:40
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
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.
