Description

Molecular dynamics is a form of computer simulation in which atoms and molecules are allowed to interact for a period of time by approximations of known physics, giving a view of the motion of the particles. This kind of simulation is frequently used in the study of proteins and biomolecules, as well as in materials science. More information on Molecular dynamics can be found here.
