In this vital resource, Martin Field provides a practical introduction to the range of different techniques available for the simulation of molecular systems. The text includes a library of program modules written in Fortran 90 with which the simulations discussed were performed. Each chapter describes a general class of methods or algorithms, and then illustrates their use with example programs, written using the module library. Topics covered include energy functions, geometry optimization and reaction path location techniques, normal mode analysis, molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo simulations and free energy calculations. This book will be of interest to advanced undergraduates, graduate students and researchers who use molecular simulation techniques, particularly in theoretical and computational chemistry, biophysics, and computational molecular physics.

Molecular simulation and modeling methods are undergoing rapid development. They are increasingly important tools for fundamental and applied research in academia and industry in such diverse fields as drug design and materials science. This book gives an introduction to molecular simulation techniques and provides a library of computer programs with which a wide range of simulations can be performed. Each chapter discusses a different class of methods and describes in detail how to use the corresponding program in the library.About the Author:
Martin J. Field is Group Leader of the Laboratoire de Dynamique Moléculaire at the Institut de Biologie Structurale - Jean-Pierre Ebel, Grenoble. He was awarded his PhD in quantum chemistry from the University of Manchester, UK, in 1985. His areas of research include using molecular modeling and simulation techniques to study biological problems more specifically, his current interests are in the development and application of hybrid potential techniques to study enzymatic reaction mechanisms and other condensed phase processes.
