A3: Vergröberung von frequenzabhängigen Phänomenen und Gedächtniseffekten in kolloidalen Systemen

In dem Projekt sollen Vergröberungsansätzen für Systeme entwickelt werden, in denen die Trennung der Zeitskalen nicht vollständig ist und Gedächtniseffekte wichtig werden. Wir testen diese Ansätze am Beispiel von kolloidalen Suspensionen in einfachen und komplexen Lösungsmitteln. In der ersten Förderperiode wurden verdünnte Systeme mit einem oder zwei Kolloiden untersucht und eine iterative Methode entwickelt, die Gedächtniskerne zu bestimmen. In der nächsten Förderperiode wollen wir Vielteilcheneffekte untersuchen, Ladungen hinzufügen, und getriebene Nichtgleichgewichtssysteme und aktive Systeme studieren. In dem neuen mathematischen Teil des Projektes soll das inverse Problem der Bestimmung von Gedächtniskernen in verallgemeinerten Langevin Gleichungen rigoros analysiert werden.

In recent years, it has become increasingly popular to construct coarse-grained models with non-Markovian dynamics to account for an incomplete separation of time scales. One challenge of a systematic coarse-graining procedure is the extraction of the dynamical properties, namely, the memory kernel, from equilibrium all-atom simulations. In this article, we propose an iterative method for memory reconstruction from dynamical correlation functions. Compared to previously proposed noniterative techniques, it ensures by construction that the target correlation functions of the original fine-grained systems are reproduced accurately by the coarse-grained system, regardless of time step and discretization effects. Furthermore, we also propose a new numerical integrator for generalized Langevin equations that is significantly more accurate than the more commonly used generalization of the velocity Verlet integrator. We demonstrate the performance of the above-described methods using the example of backflow-induced memory in the Brownian diffusion of a single colloid. For this system, we are able to reconstruct realistic coarse-grained dynamics with time steps about 200 times larger than those used in the original molecular dynamics simulations.

Computing bulk and shear viscosities from simulations of fluids with dissipative and stochastic interactions

Exact values for bulk and shear viscosity are important to characterize a fluid, and they are a necessary input for a continuum description. Here we present two novel methods to compute bulk viscosities by non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations of steady-state systems with periodic boundary conditions — one based on frequent particle displacements and one based on the application of external bulk forces with an inhomogeneous force profile. In equilibrium simulations, viscosities can be determined from the stress tensor fluctuations via Green-Kubo relations; however, the correct incorporation of random and dissipative forces is not obvious. We discuss different expressions proposed in the literature and test them at the example of a dissipative particle dynamics fluid.
