Complex fluids play an important role in daily life, biology, and industrial applications. Due to their highly nonlinear nature, constructing numerical methods to model complex fluid flow is particularly challenging. I will discuss some of the reasons for this numerical difficulty, and outline a flexible numerical scheme that partially overcomes some of these problems.
