    We present the first direct calculation by simulation of the excess surface free energy of a crystal–liquid interface. We perform these calculations on the (111), (100), and (110) interfaces of a truncated Lennard-Jones face-centered-cubic crystal–liquid system at the triple point...

    There is considerable interest in developing methodologies for the accurate evaluation of free energies, especially in the context of biomolecular simulations. Here, we report on a reexamination of the recently developed metadynamics method, which is explicitly designed to probe “rare...

    We examine the origins of nonlocality in a nonisothermal hydrodynamic formulation of a one-component fluid of particles that exhibit long-range correlations, e.g., due to a spherically symmetric, long-range interaction potential. In order to furnish the continuum modeling with physical...

    The capillary roughness and the atomic density profiles of extended interfaces between immiscible liquids are determined as a function of the interface area by using molecular dynamics and Lennard-Jones (12-6) potentials. We found that with increasing area, the interface roughness diverges...
