Abstract

We present novel time integration schemes for Newtonian dynamics whose fastest oscillations are nearly harmonic, for constrained Newtonian dynamics including the Car-Parrinello equations of ab initio molecular dynamics, and for mixed quantum-classical molecular dynamics. The methods attain favorable properties by using matrix-function vector products which are computed via Lanczos’ method. This permits to take longer time steps than in standard integrators.
