A number of large-scale and long-time molecular dynamics calculations, N=10 976 and t=1 ns, have been performed for the supercritical Lennard-Jones fluid at various densities along an isotherm at T=1.03Tc in order to investigate the structure and dynamics of clusters formed in the fluid as well as the fluid itself. The calculations successfully demonstrated both Ornstein–Zernike behavior of structure factor at small k region and critical slowing down in dynamic structure factor near the critical density. A molecular based picture for these phenomena in real space has been presented by newly defining several statistical mechanical correlation functions and distribution functions. A few static and dynamic properties of clusters such as generation and annihilation dynamics and single particle and collective energy fluctuations are also given. © 1997 American Institute of Physics.

    Molecular dynamics modeling of doubly charged Ar2+n cluster destruction is performed, where analytical expressions are constructed for the interatomic potentials. It is shown that for the small cluster Ar2+13, Coulomb explosion leads mostly to the detachment of ionic dimers. In larger clusters...
