Computer simulations by members of the NIC-project HMZ07 are reviewed. Structural and transport properties have been investigated in atomic wires by Molecular Dynamics and electronic transport methods and in model colloids by Brownian Dynamics. Nano-alloys and nanoresonators have been analysed by Molecular Dynamics and path integral Monte Carlo. Spinodal decomposition and domain growth of liquid-vapour systems and galaxy magnetism have been studied by hydrodynamics simulations, and nucleation phenomena in lattice systems by rare event methods.
