Computational Physical Chemistry

Computer simulations is a powerful tool in exploring microscopic details of physical and chemical phenomena. Sizes of systems that are investigated range from clusters to bulk systems. We focus on application of Molecular Dynamics and Monte Carlo techniques to study activated processes in solutions. These are modeled on atomic scale using different levels of description in order to capture features defining the properties of the systems.

Molecular modelling tutorial

A live debian system could be installed onto a memory key. Please, provide me with a key and I 'll burn a copy for you. Booting from the memory key you can make few runs without modifying your computer or installing additional software. Otherwise check www.gromacs.org and install Gromacs on your computer.

In the home directory of the default user styliani you can find an example of MD run using Gromacs package.

Open a terminal window.
