Lec 31 - From Biopolymer Translocation to Hemodynamics: New Challenges in Multiscale Computing. Multiscale modeling is the capability of representing different levels of phenomena, occurring at diverse spatial and temporal scales, within a unified conceptual framework. A typical example is the behavior of long molecules or nanosuspensions under the action of complex hydrodynamic flows. Our computational work tackles different phenomena such as biopolymer translocation through nanopores and hemodynamics in arteries with a novel computational scheme. The solution of such large-scale problems calls for the exploitation of powerful parallel architectures, such as the Blue Gene supercomputer, and sophisticated visualization tools to gain insight into the realm of multi-scale phenomena.
