Dynamical correlations and transport coefficients

Dynamics is why we do molecular dynamics!

  • Perturbation theory
  • Linear-response theory
  • Diffusion constants, velocity-velocity auto correlation fct.
  • Transport coefficients
    • Diffusion: Particle flux
    • Viscosity: Stress tensor
    • Heat transport: energy current
    • Electrical Conductivity: electrical current
