**Introduction to Ab Initio Molecular Dynamics**

by Juerg Hutter

**Publisher**: University of Zurich 2002**Number of pages**: 120

**Description**:

The aim of molecular dynamics is to model the detailed microscopic dynamical behavior of many different types of systems as found in chemistry, physics or biology. Molecular dynamics is a technique to investigate equilibrium and transport properties of manyâ€“body systems.
