The Dynamics of Molecular Crystals II. Intermolecular Potentials

  • Salvatore Califano


From the theory of intermolecular forces we know that analytical forms are available for the intermolecular potential V discussed in the previous lecture. This offers the advantage of making possible the calculation of a wide range of crystal properties from the same intermolecular potential, such as for instance the crystal structure, the thermodynamic and several dynamical properties.
