    The molecular pair correlation function in water is a function of a distance and five angles. It is here separated into the radial distribution function (RDF), which is only a function of distance, and an orientational distribution function (ODF), which is a function of the five angles for each...

    We discuss the relevance of the Stillinger and Weber approach to the glass transition investigating the nonequilibrium behavior of models with nontrivial dynamics, but with simple equilibrium properties. We consider a family of 1D constrained kinetic models, which interpolates between the...

    We study the relaxation dynamics of a coarse-grained polymer chain at different degrees of stretching by both analytical means and numerical simulations. The macromolecule is modeled as a string of beads, connected by anharmonic springs, subject to a tensile force applied at the end monomer of...
