Molecular models in computer simulation of liquid crystals

IlnytskyiM.R. Wilson, J.M.


J.M. IlnytskyiM.R. Wilson



A brief historical survey of progress in computer simulations of liquid crystal phases is provided. We stress the main ideas and developments in the field, concentrating on three different levels of molecular modelling: lattice models, soft nonspherical particles and atomistic models. Emphasis is placed on current state-of-the-art developments including a new parallel molecular dynamics algorithm designed for the study of flexible liquid crystals. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.
