报告题目: Mathematical Models for Complex Fluids by Energy Variational Method
报告人：Shixin Xu, Assistant Professor, Duke Kunshan University
Abstract: Complex fluids are those with internal microstructures whose evolution affects the macroscopic dynamics of the material, especially the rheology. In our body, the complex fluids are everywhere from ion transport in nanoscale to blood clotting in macroscale. How to model the complex fluids thermaldynamics consistently is a challenge problem. It is a multiscale and multicomponent problem. In the talk, we are going to talk about how to model the complex fluids by using energy varational method and their applications.
