  A centroid molecular dynamics (CMD) approach [J. Chem. Phys. , ; , ] is developed to study nonadiabatic dynamics in condensed phases, as represented by the spin-boson model. The CMD variables for both electronic and nuclear degrees of freedom are defined on the basis of the concept of a quasi-density operator. The initial distribution of the system investigated is . Dynamical properties of condensed charged polymer melts are studied with a two-dimensional model and molecular dynamics simulation. Screened Coulombic interactions are assumed for the interactions between the monomer charges as well as the counterions which were introduced to neutralize the total monomer charges of polymer chains.   a. These techniques are discussed in Section Because one can not afford to carry out simulations covering s using time steps needed to follow bond vibrations s, it is necessary to devise strategies to focus on motions whose time frame is of primary interest while ignoring or approximating faster motions. For example, when carrying out long-time MD simulations, one can. Entropy, an international, peer-reviewed Open Access journal. Dear Colleagues, Contrary to what the name seems to suggest, Molecular Dynamics (MD) is not only about generating a dynamical trajectory of a system of molecules, but also, and foremost, about understanding the .

Not sure what your motivation is and what's your background (biology undergraduate or PhD in condensed matter physics) but I can recommend a few excellent books: Computer Simulation of Liquids: M. P. Allen and D. J. Tildesley. It's a little. The bibliography is notably comprehensive, consisting of on the order of full references In conclusion, the book Ultracondensed Matter by Dynamic Compression is strongly recommended as a reference work for researchers and students involved in the study of the high-pressure response of condensed matter. The Nobel Prize in Chemistry awarded to Gerhard Ertl for his groundbreaking studies in surface chemistry highlighted the importance of heterogeneous catalysis not only for modern chemical industry but also for environmental protection. Heterogeneous catalysis is seen as one of the key technologies which could solve the challenges associated with the increasing diversification of raw. Regulatory networks are able to process complex signals and respond appropriately to the cellular context. Thus, an increasing effort by systems biology researchers is being focused on understanding which interactions are responsible for a given functional .

These properties, often exact, have many implications in the physics of fundamental interactions, condensed matter systems and statistical mechanics models. They also account for a large part of the investigations in string theory, and combined with supersymmetry have led to exact solutions of low-energy theories and the discovery of duality. Condensed-Phase Molecular Spectroscopy and Photophysics was developed to fill the need for a textbook that introduces the basics of traditional molecular spectroscopy with a strong emphasis on condensed-phase systems. It also examines optical processes in extended systems such as metals, semiconductors, and conducting polymers, and addresses. @article{osti_, title = {Electron transfer reactions in condensed phases}, author = {Newton, M D and Sutin, N}, abstractNote = {Despite the multitude of formalisms, there is general agreement that the crux of the electron transfer problem is the change in equilibrium nuclear configurations that occurs when a molecule or ion gains or loses an electron.

The uniform approach and common. The book provides a detailed account of how condensed-phase molecular dynamics are reflected in the line shapes of NMR spectra. The theories establishing connections between random, time-dependent molecular processes and lineshape effects are exposed in depth.

Studies of model condensed-phase systems target first-principles understanding of molecular reactivity and dynamical processes in solution and at interfaces, including complex interfaces.

And in molecular gases and liquids, processes of optical harmonic conversion present a powerful tool for the study of both static and dynamic effects of molecular orientation. Where the detailed nonlinear optical response of molecules is required, the application of molecular quantum electrodynamics (QED) brings both rigour and conceptual facility.

Recent advances in the Density Functional Theory (DFT) of molecules have provided us with improved density functionals which can be used to describe both chemical bonding and intermolecular interactions in hydrogen bonded systems.

When implemented in ab initio molecular dynamics (MD) codes, these DFT methods enable us to study dynamical processes in hydrogen bonded condensed phases.

Located at the tip of type I fimbria of Escherichia coli, the bacterial adhesin FimH is responsible for the attachment of the bacteria to the (human) host by specifically binding to highly-mannosylated glycoproteins located on the exterior of the host cell wall.

In this lecture we shall concentrate on MD. The obvious advantage of MD over MC is that it gives a route to dynamical properties of the system: transport coefcients, time-dependent.
