This book describes the extremely powerful technique of molecular dynamics simulation, which involves solving the classical many-body problem in contexts relevant to the study of matter at the atomic level. The method allows the prediction of the static and dynamic properties of substances directly from the underlying interactions between the molecules. Because there is no alternative approach capable of handling such a broad range of problems at the required level of detail, molecular dynamics methods have proved themselves indispensable in both pure and applied research.
