I will outline the application of the fluctuating lattice-Boltzmann equation
to the simulation of polymer solutions. Then I will describe a numerical
assessment of the accuracy of lattice-Boltzmann methods for polymers, by
comparison with Brownian dynamics simulations on a similar model system.
We will examine the relaxation spectrum of an isolated chain and the
migration of individual chains in shear and pressure-driven flows.
