How does one calculate the individual phonon dispersion curves from molecular dynamics simulation?

How does one calculate the phonon dispersion relations from the output of a molecular dynamics simuation?

I have successfully calculated the complete phonon density of states using a fourier transform of the velocity autocorrelation function, but I am still confused as to how to calculate the particular phonon dispersion curves.

Souvik Pal@ onHi Rogers,

Did you figure it out? I have the exact same question! I believe one calculates a dynamical matrix first from a carefully prepared initial condition. However, I have so far very limited understanding on this. So if you could share how you calculated it, that would be extremely helpful for me.

Thanks and regards,

Souvik.
