# C5: Adaptive hybrid multiscale simulations of soft matter fluids

The aim of this project is to develop and analyse a novel hybrid multiscale method to simulate fluids that combines the discontinuous Galerkin (dG) method and molecular dynamics (MD). Interaction between particles and continuum variables is realized dynamically, i.e., on-the-fly. Reduced order techniques are used to control the number of computationally expensive MD simulations. In the next funding period, we plan to (i) study error control by means of a-priori feedback estimates and analyse scheme convergence. (ii) Generalize the method to describe more complex physical systems such as non-Newtonian fluids and self-propelled colloidal particles, and (iii) move from benchmark geometries to real-world geometries used in microfluidics.
