"What Press' Numerical Recipes did for scientific computing in general, Dennis Rapaport's new book will do for the field of molecular-dynamics simulation...designed to be useful to both beginners and experts...it deserves wide readership." Computers in Physics
The book describes computer simulation techniques used in modeling matter at the atomistic level. An extensive series of detailed case studies are used to introduce the reader to methods suitable for dealing with a variety of problems, all connected with the way the molecular interactions and motions determine the properties of matter as observed in the real world. The methods are widely used in studying phenomena involving everything from the simplest of liquids to highly complex molecules such as proteins.
