Computer Simulation of Liquids Synopsis

This book provides a practical guide to molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo simulation techniques used in the modelling of simple and complex liquids. Computer simulation is an essential tool in studying the chemistry and physics of condensed matter, complementing and reinforcing both experiment and theory. Simulations provide detailed information about structure and dynamics, essential to understand the many fluid systems that play a key role in our daily lives: polymers, gels, colloidal suspensions, liquid crystals, biological membranes, and glasses. The second edition of this pioneering book aims to explain how simulation programs work, how to use them, and how to interpret the results, with examples of the latest research in this rapidly evolving field. Accompanying programs in Fortran and Python provide practical, hands-on, illustrations of the ideas in the text.

Computer Simulation of Liquids Press Reviews

This new edition is a welcome update and has kept the strengths of the first edition and been thoroughly refreshed and expanded for the modern age. Whilst there is now much more competition for a textbook such as this, the new edition stands head-and-shoulders above the others and is therefore strongly recommended. * Matt Probert, Contemporary Physics *

About Michael Patrick (Emeritus Professor and Visiting Fellow, Emeritus Professor and Visiting Fellow, University of Warwick a Allen

Michael Allen obtained his first degree, and doctorate, in Chemistry at the University of Oxford. After post-doctoral positions at UCLA and Oxford, he was, in 1985, appointed Lecturer, then Reader, and finally Professor in Physics at the University of Bristol. In 2001 he became founding Director of the Centre for Scientific Computing in Warwick, where he stayed in Physics until retirement in 2014. Allen was awarded an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Forschungspreis in 1999, visiting Mainz (University and MPI for Polymer Research). He received the 2015 Lennard-Jones award and lectureship from the Royal Society of Chemistry Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics Group, and the Thermodynamics Conference ...
