Fascinating natural patterns are observed in systems composed of many particles subject to non-linear laws. Statistical Physics aims to create a link between the microscopic properties of the particles and some macroscopic variables. The Group of Research and Applications in Statistical Physics (GRASP) at the University of Liège was founded in 1999 to address those questions in Soft Matter.
The sketch here below illustrates the various scales and systems under investigation. The GRASP projects are dedicated to the study of nano particles, suspensions, monolayers, biosensors, self-assembling systems, powders, colloids, granular systems, droplets, antibubbles, microfluidics, soap films, emulsions, foams, complex fluids, active matter, rheology, chaos and non-linear phenomena.
