# A3: Coarse-graining frequency-dependent phenomena and memory in colloidal systems

The goal of this project is to develop coarse-graining schemes for systems where the separation of time scales is incomplete and memory effects become important. We develop and test these schemes using colloids in simple or complex fluids as an example. In the first funding period, we have considered dilute systems of one or two colloids in simple fluids and developed an iterative method to determine memory kernels. In the next funding period, we plan to consider many-particle-effects, include charges, and also consider driven nonequilibrium and active systems. In the new mathematical work-packages we will analyze rigorously the inverse problem of determining appropriate memory kernels for the generalized Langevin equation.
