Over the past dozen years we have produced some of the most widely used interactive computer-based curricular materials for the teaching of introductory and advanced physics courses. These materials are now hosted on and distributed from the Open Source Physics (OSP) Collection of the ComPADRE National Science Digital Library. This talk outlines the tripartite integration of ComPADRE with...
I will present three unrelated examples in which efficient computer simulations have been employed to address soft matter properties. The first example will deal with the dynamics of polymers near surfaces. Despite the significant progress within the last decade, in particular on the structure and thermodynamic properties in confinement, their dynamics remained an active field of research....
