Numerical Calculations in Classical Liquids

  • A. Rahman
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 35)


We are concerned with a system of N particles with masses mi, i=1,…, N which interact with a potential V which is a continuous function of the coordinates of the particles namely ri, i=1,…, N. The extension to include a system of rigid bodies as well will be mentioned later. The classical equations of motion of the N particles are
$${m_i}{\underline {\ddot r} _i} = - {\underline \nabla _i}V,\;i = 1,...,N$$
so that the knowledge of all the ri and ri at any time t0 is in principle enough to obtain the positions and velocities at any other time t.
