Abstract: A modeling and simulation formalism is presented for the study of soft materials. The formalism
takes into account microstructure elasticity, hydrodynamic interactions, and thermal fluctuations. As a specific motivation we consider lipid bilayer membranes and polymeric fluids. The
approach couples a Lagrangian description of the microstructures (lipid molecules / polymers)
