Description

VOLUME 12: REVIEWS IN COMPUTATIONAL CHEMISTRY

Kenny B. Lipkowitz and Donald B. Boyd

HOW DOES ONE COMPUTE FREE ENERGY AND ENTROPY FROM MOLECULAR SIMULATIONS? WHAT HAPPENS WHEN SIMULATIONS ARE RUN WITH CONSTRAINTS? HOW SHOULD SIMULATIONS BE PERFORMED TO MODEL INTERFACIAL PHENOMENA? HOW IS DENSITY FUNCTIONAL THEORY USED TO SIMULATE MATERIALS? WHAT QUANTUM MECHANICAL METHODS SHOULD BE USED TO COMPUTE NONLINEAR OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF MATERIALS? WHICH PARAMETERS ARE MOST INFLUENTIAL IN A MOLECULAR SIMULATION? HOW CAN CRYSTAL STRUCTURES BE PREDICTED? TUTORIALS PROVIDING ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS ARE THE FOCUS OF THIS BOOK.

FROM REVIEWS OF THE SERIES

Indexes.

“Of interest to this reviewer were the chapters on biomolecular simulations and water calculations. In the chapter by Meirovitch, the difficulties encountered in obtaining the thermodynamic parameters of F (free energy) and S (entropy) are discussed, as well as these.).”  (J. Am. Chem. Soc., 1999)
