WE-Heraeus-Seminar Nonlinear Response in Complex Systems and Nonequilibrium Liquids

Nonlinear response phenomena arise when external fields influence the dynamics of a physical system strongly enough or quickly enough so that the relaxation of fluctuations into equilibrium is interrupted. In classical many-body systems, slow, collective structural relaxation processes that are highly susceptible to external-field influences are one important example in particular in glass-forming liquids or colloidal suspensions and similar mesostructured complex materials. The 570. WE Heraeus-Seminar "Nonlinear Response of Nonequilibrium Liquids and Complex Matter" is a podium for the discussion of recent developments in the theory of nonlinear response phenomena that arise from this interplay of slow relaxation and (mostly, but not restricted to) mechanical fields. Specific scientific topics addressed in the WE-Heraeus-Seminar are: statistical physics and stochastic processes far from equilibrium, nonlinear rheology of dense fluids and amorphous solids, nonequilibrium molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo simulations, mesoscopic simulation techniques, experimental methods for nonequilibrium colloidal suspensions, active motion.
