Abstract

Brownian Dynamics

Let’s explore the connection between Brownian motion and Metropolis Monte Carlo. Why?

  • Connection with smart MC
  • Introduce the idea of kinetic Monte Carlo
  • Get rid of solvent degrees of freedom and have much longer time steps.

Content:

  • Local Markov process
  • General Form of Evolution
  • Moment Expansion
  • Trotter’s formula
  • Generalized Trotter Formula
  • Evaluation of diffusion term
  • Green’s function for a gradient
  • Summary of Brownian Dynamics
  • Hydrodynamical effects
  • Langevin Equation
  • Dissipative Particle Dynamics (DPD)FS 465
