Dissipative particle dynamics
Dissipative particle dynamics (DPD) is a technique originally developed for simulating hydrodynamic phenomena. In particular, it targets fluctuating hydrodynamics, a mesoscopic regime in which fluctuations play a role. One of its main uses is a thermostat for molecular dynamics simulations, since the DPD interactions have the desirable property of momentum conservation (both linear, and angular).
