materials including metals, ceramics and soft materials as well as new
Lecture 1: the theory behind molecular dynamics
09 Jan 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Alejandro Strachan
The first lecture will
provide a brief description of classical mechanics and statistical
mechanics necessary to understand the physics and approximations behind
MD and how to correctly...
Lecture 3: simulation details and coarse grain approaches
presentation will describe simulation techniques to simulate materials
under isothermal and isobaric conditions. We will also describe coarse
grain or mesodynamical approaches...
Introduction: molecular dynamics simulations

will describe the idea behind MD simulations and demonstrate its use in
Computing the Horribleness of Soft Condensed Matter
5.0 out of 5 stars
19 Oct 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Eric Jakobsson
A great triumph of computer simulations 40 years ago was to make the liquid state of matter understandable in terms of physical
interactions between individual molecules. Prior to the first...
Charge Transfer Across an Energy Transducing Integral Membrane Protein Complex
31 May 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): William A. Cramer
The cytochrome bc complexes of the mitochondrial respiratory and photosynthetic electron transport chains are hetero-oligomeric integral membrane proteins. These proteins are responsible for most...
Atomistic Modeling of the Mechanical Properties of Nanostructured Materials
23 Apr 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): SeongJun Heo, Susan Sinnott
