Illinois PHYS 466, Lecture 6: Scalar Properties and Static Correlations
Scalar Properties, Static Correlations and Order Parameters
What do we get out of a simulation?
- Static properties: pressure, specific heat, etc.
- Pair correlations in real space and Fourier space
- Order parameters and broken symmetry: How to tell a liquid from a solid
- Dynamical properties –next lecture
