Understanding how mass, energy, or charge are transported on small scales is challenging, as standard hydrodynamic descriptions developed for macroscopic phenomena need not remain valid. On small scales, matter is discrete, thermal fluctuations render currents stochastic quantities, and nonlinear response is ubiquitous.
In this talk, I will discuss some recent efforts to develop a molecular perspective on nanoscale transport, including elucidating the molecular motions that underlie nonlinear response functions, and molecular simulation techniques to study such processes on a computer.
