Kinetic theory and complex fluids

Prof. M. Gregory Forest

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Abstract:  Kinetic theory has played an important role in complex fluids, where the fundamental challenge is to model the dynamics of microstructure and its coupling to hydrodynamics. I will talk about model microstructures where progress has been made, historically and recently.
