MD: Molecular Dynamics
For an introduction on MD I refer to:
Molecular Mechanics MM and Molecular Dynamics MD
Notes on MD:

  • Timescales
    Time required to cross a free energy barrier:
    τ = τ0exp(ΔG/kBT)
                                  1 kcal/mol ~ ps ; 5 kcal/mol ~ ns ; 10 kcal/mol ~ μs
    Sampling should exceed the timescales by ~ 10 fold.
  • Thermodynamic variables T and P
    • Statistical ensembles connect microscopic to macroscopic
      Microcanonical (NVE, Entropy)
      Canonical (NVT, Helmholz free energy)
      Isothermic-isobaric (NPT, Gibbs free energy)
    • Thermostats, barostats allow to choose the appropriate ensemble.
      (Andersen, Nose, Hoover)
