Basic Molecular Dynamics
A working definition of molecular dynamics (MD) simulation is technique by which one generates the atomic trajectories of a system of N particles by numerical integration of Newton’s equation of motion, for a specific interatomic potential, with certain initial condition (IC) and boundary condition (BC).
