The anisotropy is weak, but can be accurately resolved using...

    Molecular dynamics is used to obtain crystal growth rates for a model n-alkane. A united atom model of bulk n-eicosane exhibits an observable phase change from an amorphous phase to a close-packed hexagonal phase, in the presence of a crystal surface. Rates are calculated from the translation of...

    We report molecular dynamics simulations of a Gay–Berne nematic liquid crystal at constant temperature and density/pressure using the generalization of an algorithm recently proposed by Toxvaerd [Phys. Rev. E 47, 343 (1993)]. On the basis of these simulations the absolute values of the...

    In recent years, a fundamental understanding of solidification and its behavior has been gained through molecular dynamics simulations and the phase-field method, the first of which is limited to short time scales and the latter of which does not represent interface and elastoplastic properties...

    This paper describes a new approach for analysis of residual dipolar couplings (RDCs). The method, which focuses on construction of the conformational distribution function, is applied to 4-n-pentyl-4'-cyanobiphenyl in the nematic phase. The RDCs are calculated from a trajectory generated in a...
