Addressing Molecular Dynamics Time-scale Issues to Study Atomic-scale Friction
12 Oct 2010 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Ashlie Martini
This presentation will include an introduction to several accelerated molecular dynamics methods. However, particular focus will be given to parallel replica (ParRep) dynamics in which atomistic simulations are run parallel in time to extend their total duration. The ParRep method is based on the assumptions that the system being modeled advances to new configurations via infrequent events and that there are well-defined instantaneous rate constants for these events that are independent of the driving rate.
