Progress in Computational Physics of Matter: Methods, Software and Applications Overview
The aim of this text is to describe some of the recent advances, through computer simulation in a broad sense, in the understanding of the complex processes occurring in solid and liquids. The rapid growth of computer power, including the new parallel processors, has stimulated a ferment of new theoretical and computational ideas, which have been developed in particular by the authors in a pluriennal research project supported by Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) for the development of novel software for large scale computations. The book covers advances in "ab initio" (Car-Parrinello) molecular dynamics, quantum Monte Carlo simulations, self-consistent density functional computation of electronic states, classical molecular dynamics simulation of thermodynamic processes, chemical reactions and transport properties. Besides the description of the results of these techniques in leading edge applications, the book addresses specific aspects of the algorithms and software which have been developed by the authors in order to implement in an efficient way the new theoretical advances in these computationally intensive problems. These aspects which are generally not discussed in any detail in the literature, can be of great help for newcomers in the field.
