Special Cosmology Seminar, Sauro Succi "Lattice Boltzmann simulations across scales: turbulence, foams and quark-gluon plasmas"
In the last two decades, the Lattice Boltzmann (LB) method has attracted major interest as an efficient computational scheme for the numerical simulation of complex fluid problems across a broad range of scales and applications; from fluid turbulence in complex geometries, all the way down to biopolymer translocation in nanopores.
Recently, LB has also been extended to the case of relativistic fluids, and successfully employed for numerical investigations of transport phenomena in quark-gluon plasmas and electron flows in graphene.
In this talk, we shall present the main ideas behind the LB method and discuss recent applications to fluid turbulence, soft-glass rheology and shock propagation in quark-gluon plasmas.
