The simulation of entropic phase transitions
This paper reviews recent (numerical) progress in the understanding of entropic phase transitions in complex fluids. In particular, I discuss (liquid-)crystal formation and demixing in binary mixtures. In some cases it appears that lessons learnt in the study of complex fluids may have an unexpected relevance for simple fluids.
