This comprises the description of many particle systems under shear by introducing a modified Smoluchowski operator and the time evolution of wavevector-depending quantities. Correlation functions of the latter like the stuctural distortion under shear or the apparent shear viscosity emerge as generalized Green-Kubo relations (GKR). Interestingly this means expressing quantities infinitely far away from equilibrium through equilibrium averages. The evaluation of the GKR via MCT will finally be sketched for convenience.
Stay tuned! After we coped with the bulk of theoretical concepts, I will proceed with lighter stuff on 17 Dec in the lunchtime seminar by presenting some results for hard discs.
This is a roughly weekly series of didactical blackboard talks focussing on some theoretical aspect of Condensed Matter, Biological, and Statistical Physics..
