Abstract:

Recent ideas to extend the scope and applicability of large-scale computer simulation of condensed phases are discussed. These include i the use of simulated annealing and related methods in first-principles calculations and ii the development effective-medium and similar approximate approaches to interatomic interactions in lo-symmetry situations. Examples of applications to molecular dynamics simulations are presented.
