This Joint CDT Colloquium has been organised by:
Tim Hurst, Anton Martinsson, Razvan Mosincat, Jenovah Rodrigues (University of Edinburgh, MIGSAA)  

 

This is a student led colloquium, hosted by the Maxwell Institute Graduate School for Analysis and its Applications (MIGSAA). The colloquium brings together students from four mathematical Centres for Doctoral Training. The attending CDTs are:

Cambridge Centre for Analysis (CCA)
Maxwell Institute Graduate School for Analysis and its Applications (MIGSAA)
Oxford Centre for Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations (OxPDE)
Warwick Mathematics and Statistics Centre for Doctoral Training (MASDOC)

 

The colloquium consists of two mini-courses, presented by Ruslan Davidchack (Leicester) and by Gustav Holzegel (Imperial), alongside student presentations on their current research.

Introduction to Methods for Molecular Simulation
After introducing basic concepts of molecular modelling and simulation methods, I will focus on several specific topics:  1) molecular dynamics simulation and Langevin thermostats for simulating rigid molecules, 2) discretisation errors in molecular dynamics simulations with deterministic and stochastic thermostats, and 3) methods of free energy calculations.
