Molecular dynamics simulations are playing an increasingly important role in many areas of science and engineering, from biology and pharmacy to nanoelectronics and structural materials. Recent breakthroughs in methodologies and in first principles-based interatomic potentials significantly increased the range of applicability of MD and the accuracy of its predictions even for new materials not yet fabricated or synthesized. Such predictive power indicates that MD has the potential to play a key role in guiding the design and optimization of new materials with improved properties tailored for specific applications.

The goal of this short course is to provide an introduction to the theory behind MD simulations, describe some of the most exciting recent developments in the field and exemplify its use in various applications. The short course consists of a brief introduction and three lectures.
