Reports on molecular dynamics simulation results for a single particle and collective orientational correlations for Gay-Berne fluid of anisotropy parameters. Slowing of the decay of collective orientational relaxation of rank two while approaching the isotropic-nematic (I-N) transition; Collective relaxation approaching a Markovian behavior near the I-N transition.

    Using event-driven molecular dynamics simulations, we quantify how the self diffusivity of confined hard-sphere fluids depends on the nature of the confining boundaries.

    With molecular dynamics simulations of a fluid mixture of classical particles interacting with pairwise additive Weeks-Chandler-Andersen potentials, we consider the time series of particle displacements and thereby determine the distributions for local persistence times and local exchange times....
