In this talk I first introduce a generic hard-particle system. In order to simulate its evolution, I then present two classes of time-stepping algorithms which typically involve a non-convex minimization problem in terms of the positions and velocities, respectively. This framework will then be used to study the dynamics of ballistic aggregation of hard-spheres and the evolution of a cell tissue.
