We present information about our research, describe techniques and methods that we use, and show selected results of our work. Our group performs Monte Carlo and Molecular Dynamics computer simulations on a variety of soft matter system such as block copolymers, lipid solutions and colloids. We also use standard Metropolis algorithm and parallel tempering (replica exchange) Monte Carlo method.

For simulations of dense systems, we use Monte Carlo Cooperative Motion Algorithm. We carry out Molecular Dynamics simulations applying a variety of force fields. Moreover, we perform lattice as well as off-lattice simulations of block copolymers. We also measure the relevant thermodynamic, dynamic properties such as diffusion and structural properties of polymer chains, e.g. end-to-end distance, radii of gyration and structure factor.
