Scalar Properties, Static Correlations and Order Parameters

What do we get out of a simulation?

  • Static properties: pressure, specific heat, etc.
  • Density
  • 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
