1
Molecular Dynamics

2
Basic Idea Solve Newton’s equations of motion Choose a force field (specified by a potential V) appropriate for the given system under study Decide a statistical ensemble to use, choice of boundary conditions; collect statistics of observables

3
Commonly Use Force Fields Lennard-Jones Potential –For noble gas and generic fluids Tersoff, Brenner, Stillinger-Weber, 3-, 4- body potentials –For C, Si, Ge, … AMBER, CHARMM, GROMOS, MM4, etc –For biomolecules GULP, DFT codes, etc

4
Example of potential used in biomolecular modeling

5
Ensembles Micro-canonical Ensemble –Energy is fixed Canonical ensemble –Need to use “thermostat” to fix temperature Langevin dynamics Nosé-Hoover Generalized Langevin

6
Langevin Dynamics How to correctly implement the white noise on computer?

7
Nosé-Hoover Dynamics

8
Generalized Langevin Σ is known as self-energy

9
Observables, Statistics Equilibrium temperature (in micro-canonical ensemble) by equipartition theorem. Pressure of a fluid (for pair potential) Where d is dimension, F ij is the force acting on particle i from particle j.

10
Transport Coefficients The diffusion constant can be computed through velocity correlation function

11
Transport Coefficients Thermal conductivity can be computed through energy-current correlation using Green-Kubo formula; or nonequilibrium simulation by directly computing the energy current

12
Textbooks on MD M P Allen & D J Tildesley, “Computer Simulation of Liquids,” (Oxford, 1987) D Frenkel & B Smit, “Understanding Molecular Simulation,” 2 nd ed (Academic Press, 2002) A R Leach, “Molecular Modeling, principles and applications” (Addison Wesley Longman, 1996)

13
Tutorial Problem Set 12 Prove the pressure formula (required a great deal of knowledge of statistical mechanics).
