Computer Simulation of Liquids: Second Edition

Michael P. Allen and Dominic J. Tildesley


This book provides a practical guide to molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo simulation techniques used in the modelling of simple and complex liquids. Computer simulation is an essential tool in studying the chemistry and physics of condensed matter, complementing and reinforcing both experiment and theory. Simulations provide detailed information about structure and dynamics, essential to understand the many fluid systems that play a key role in our daily lives: polymers, gels, colloidal suspensions, liquid crystals, biological membranes, and glasses. The second edition of this pioneering book ... More

Keywords: Molecular-dynamics, Monte-Carlo, molecular-simulation, statistical-mechanics, computer-modelling, mesoscale-modelling
