PhD Defense on Theory and Simulation of Magnetic Particles

Last March 4th, Mr. Jordi Andreu Segura defended his paper “Statistical Mechanics of Superparamagnetic Colloidal Dispersions Under Magnetic Fields”, which was submitted to obtain a PhD degree in Materials Science at the Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona.  He obtained the maximum "Cum Laude" qualification.

Here is a Blog post about this tesis and the public-private partnership involved in his work:

MagChain Software (v 1.0)

We are pleased to announce the first release of the MagChain Simulation Software. This first version of the package (24Nov2011) can be downloaded free of charge under a free license for academic use. Check the documentation page for more details on this software.

The algorithms and performance of the code is discussed in J.S. Andreu, C. Calero, J. Camacho and J. Faraudo, Phys. Rev. E 85, 036709 (2012)
