Week 6

The summary of useful weblinks is stored on the summary page

The files you will need are in week6.tar. The first is pgplot, the other AViz. I have checked phelafel and aluf for these. Other computers may also be OK, but to all machines you must do ssh -Y to pass over AViz visualizations.

The new topic to be discussed this week is Molecular Dynamics. This idea is simple in principle but quite hard to get all the details exactly right. Time permitting, we will also discuss visualization of the results. With even more time we will discuss simulated annealing, to find equilibrium states for atomic systems, which in some years is deferred till after Monte Carlo Simulation is discussed. If we complete it - great, if not we will take it up in the week after next. We will also look at: Molecular dynamics of nanotubes time permitting.
