Extended-Scale Atomistics Chapter 8

Introduction to the Time Scale Problem

Authors: A.F. Voter

Affilation: Los Alamos National Laboratory, United States

Pages: 128 - 131

Keywords: kinetic Monte Carlo, hyperdynamics, temperature accelerate dynamics, parallel-replica dynamics, dimer method

As motivation for the symposium on extended-scale atomistic methods, I briefly discuss the time scale problem that plagues molecular dynamics simulations, some promising recent developments for circumventing the problem, and some remaining challenges.
