Description

This book presents the most important and main concepts of the molecular and microsimulation techniques. It enables readers to improve their skills in developing simulation programs by providing physical problems and sample simulation programs for them to use.

Key Features

  • Provides tools to develop skills in developing simulations programs
  • Includes sample simulation programs for the reader to use
  • Appendix explains Fortran and C languages in simple terms to allow the non-expert to use them

 

Readership

Graduates and researchers in physics, chemistry, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering

Reviews

"This well-written handbook provides an overview of the current developments in the practice of MD (both deterministic and stochastic), which makes it a useful reference book for software developers and practitioners of MD simulations."--ComputingReviews.com, January 11, 2013
