Addressing Molecular Dynamics Time-scale Issues to Study Atomic-scale Friction
12 Oct 2010 | | 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...
Tutorial 3: Materials Simulation by First-Principles Density Functional Theory
14 Sep 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Umesh V. Waghmare
This two-part lecture will provide an introduction to first-principles density functional theory based methods for simulation of materials, with a focus on determination of interatomic force constants and vibrational spectra of nano- structures and extended periodic materials.

Ripples and Warping of Graphene: A Theoretical Study
19 May 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Umesh V. Waghmare
We use first-principles density functional theory based analysis to understand formation of ripples in graphene and related 2-D materials. For an infinite graphene, we show that ripples are linked with a low energy branch of phonons that exhibits quadratic dispersion at long wave-lengths. Many...
