Dear Colleagues,


Welcome to the mini-workshop in computational and statistical physics. The mini-workshop aims to create an informal atmosphere for reporting recent progress, exchanging new ideas and promoting national and international collaboration.


Hangzhou is a resort place for sightseeing. Besides physics, one may enjoy some days in the “paradise on earth”.


The mini-workshop this year may be a starting point. Our intention is a regular one (yearly or by two years), and to include colleagues from east Asia. We keep the size to 15 –20 participants for easy, efficient and fruitful discussions.


Thank you very much for coming.


Looking forward to seeing you in Hangzhou!







We have reserved rooms in Yu-quan (玉泉) hotel, just in front of the Yu-quan campus of Zhejiang Univ. (old Zheda). If you arrive by bus or by train, please take a taxi to Yu-quan hotel. From any stations, it costs less than 25 yuan. If you arrive by air, please inform us and we will send a car to pick you up. In an urgent case, one can also take a taxi, it costs around 110 – 130 yuan.

2. Nonequilibrium relaxation study on equilibrium state

  Standard strategy of computer simulation studies on phases and transitions is based on the estimation of
the equilibrium values of physical quantities.
So the simulation steps after the equilibrium state is well reproduced are used in the analysis. A completely different simulation strategy which uses the nonequilibrium relaxation process was proposed and it has been applied to various problems successfully. The results of nonequilibrium relaxation studies on phases and transitions are to be reviewed in this talks.
