From Dark Matter to Micro-swimmers with Ann Almgren, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

This GAGS will explore how particles are used computationally to represent very different quantities, from dark matter at very large scale to atoms or smaller. Flows of many solid particles immersed in a fluid are extremely common in astrophysical (planetary formation), geophysical (landslides, avalanches), biological (blood flow), and industrial processes (oil and pharmaceutical production). As part of this GAG we will attend different talks showcasing the computational use of particles and see how the way they are used depends on what they represent.
