Thermodynamics and Transport Properties (01a)

#530 - Computational Studies of Self-Assembly III (01A23)
This session seeks papers that explore the thermodynamics, structural and dynamical properties of self-assembled systems. Subjects of interest include, but are not limited to: colloidal forces driving assembly, hierarchical organization, structural transitions, phase behavior, and multi-scale models spanning molecular to mesoscopic length and time scales for assembly. The emphasis is on simulation and computational papers, but theoretical models and complementary experimental papers are also welcome.
