2. Propagate W according to Eq. 123 using a simplified Runge–Kutta method. 3. Adjust U to make sure the incompressibility constraint φA∗ + φB∗ = 1 is fulfilled again using the Newton–Broyden method. 4. Go back to (1). The EPD method has two main advantages compared to DSCFT: First of all it incorporates non-local coupling corresponding to the Rouse dynamics via a local Onsager coefficient. Secondly it proves to be computationally faster by up to one order of magnitude. There are two main reasons for this huge increase in speed: In EPD the number of equations that have to be solved via the Newton–Broyden method to fulfill incompressibility is just the number of Fourier functions used.

We refer to the method which uses this diffusion equation as the external potential dynamics (EPD) [31]. As shown in Sect. 1, any Onsager coefficient (in conjunction with the fluctuationdissipation theorem) will reproduce the correct thermodynamic equilibrium. But how is the dynamics of the field W related to the collective dynamics of composition fluctuations? Comparing the diffusion equations of the dynamic SCF theory and the EP Dynamics, Eqs. 120 and 124, and using the relation W(q, t) = – 2χNφA (q, t), we obtain a relation between the Onsager coefficients within RPA: 2χN Λφ (q) (125) ΛEPD (q) = φ¯ A φ¯ B g(q) In particular, the non-local Onsager coefficient ΛRouse that mimics Rouse-like dynamics (cf.
