Краткий обзор статьи: A lattice-Boltzmann model for the study of the dynamics of oil-water-surfactant mixtures is constructed. The model, which is based on a Ginzburg-Landau theory of amphiphilic systems with a single, scalar order parameter, is then used to calculate the spectrum of undulation modes of an oil-water interface and the spontaneous emulsification of oil and water after a quench from two-phase coexistence into the lamellar phase. A comparison with some analytical results shows that the model provides an accurate description of the static and dynamic behavior of amphiphilic systems.
