ESPResSo Summer School 2019


The purpose of Carolina Cruz visit was to attend the ESPResSo Summer School 2019: Active, Charged, and Magnetic Soft Matter Simulations with ESPResSo at the University of Stuttgart.

During the school,  Carolina learnt to conduct simulations in the fields of statistical physics as well as soft and active matter using the software ESPResSo which is an open-source particle-based simulation package with a focus on coarse-grained molecular dynamics models. After an introduction to particle based simulations and the simulation software, a wide range of topics related to charged soft matter were covered.

The lectures provided an introduction to the physics and simulation model building as well as an overview of the necessary simulation algorithms such as electrostatics and hydrodynamics solvers.  During the school, participants had hands-on exercises where they practiced running their own simulations
