General nonequilibrium theory of colloid dynamics.
TLDR
A nonequilibrium extension of Onsager's canonical theory of thermal fluctuations is employed to derive a self-consistent theory that provides a general theoretical framework to describe irreversible processes associated with dynamic arrest transitions, such as aging, and the effects of spatial heterogeneities.
Theory of dynamic arrest in colloidal mixtures.
TLDR
A first-principles theory of dynamic arrest in colloidal mixtures based on the multicomponent self-consistent generalized Langevin equation theory of colloid dynamics is presented and the entire ergodic-nonergodic phase diagram of the binary hard-sphere mixture is drawn.
Simplified self-consistent theory of colloid dynamics.
TLDR
It is reported that a simplified version of this SCGLE theory, in which this short-time information is eliminated, leads to the same results in the intermediate and long-time regimes.
Non-equilibrium theory of arrested spinodal decomposition.
TLDR
Two distinct domains are recognized as corresponding to full gas-liquid phase separation conditions and to the formation of physical gels by arrested spinodal decomposition, which are consistent with the corresponding experimental observations in a specific colloidal model system.
Dynamic density functional theory of fluids
We present a new time-dependent density functional approach to study the relaxational dynamics of an assembly of interacting particles subject to thermal noise. Starting from the Langevin stochastic
The generalized Langevin equation as a contraction of the description. An approach to tracer diffusion
An effective Langevin equation for a tracer Brownian particle immersed in a macrofluid of other diffusing particles is derived as a contraction of the description involving the stochastic equations
On the Maxwell-Stefan approach to diffusion: a general resolution in the transient regime for one-dimensional systems.
TLDR
The problem of the numerical resolution of the Maxwell-Stefan equations in the transient regime for a one-dimensional system with a generic number of components is addressed, avoiding the definition of the analytic expression of the elements of the Fick-like diffusion matrix.
Equilibration and aging of dense soft-sphere glass-forming liquids.
TLDR
The recently developed nonequilibrium extension of the self-consistent generalized Langevin equation theory of irreversible relaxation is applied to the description of the irreversible process of equilibration and aging of a glass-forming soft-sphere liquid that follows a sudden temperature quench, within the constraint that the local mean particle density remains uniform and constant.
On a fundamental description of the Kovacs' kinetic signatures in glass-forming systems.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the NE-SCGLE theory reproduces all the Kovacs' signatures, namely, intrinsic isotherm, asymmetry of approach, and memory effect, when extended into largely unexplored, deep glassy state, regions that are below the notionally "ideal" glass temperature.
Dynamical density functional theory and its application to spinodal decomposition.
TLDR
The dynamical density functional theory is used to derive a theory for spinodal decomposition that is applicable at both early and intermediate times and incorporates coupling between different Fourier components of the density fluctuations (modes).
