For the purpose of studying pattern formation processes in a binary mixture with surfactant molecules such as the formation of a microemulsion, we propose dynamical models which comprise a continuous field representing an immiscible binary fluid mixture and discrete surfactant molecules. In order to demonstrate the efficiency of such a hybrid approach, computer experiments on pattern formation processes are performed combining the cell dynamics method and the molecular dynamics method.
