Feel free to contact me at axel. Some older reference trajectories are available on our FTP-Server. In a Car-Parrinello MD simulation, however, the interactions are calculated directly from the electron structure in every time step.

The interactions in such complex systems can not be easily described ccpmd fixed, parametrized potentials, fpmd it is usually done for classical molecular dynamics MD simulations. Similar to classical MD-simulations, where you have to provide model potentials e.

Some older reference trajectories are available on our FTP-Server back to top Additional Information Excerpt from a larger overview article on Car-Parrinello methodology. If it becomes much larger, then you need to reoptimize the wavefunction, as you system is about to deviate too far from the Born-Oppenheimer Surface. Excerpt from a larger overview article on Car-Parrinello methodology.

Please cpmdd, that a running simulation does not automatically mean, that the simulation is correctly representing the intended system. The nature of the hydrated excess proton in water from Nature and the review of that article from the same journal. The forces are obtained manuaal the gradients of the total electronic energy at the positions of the nuclei and thus forming a multi-particle potential.


Tutorial: QM/MM MD by CPMD

Calculate the oxygen-oxygen and hydrogen-hydrochen pair correlation functions and compare the results with the respective pair correlation functions from the different ab initio and classical MD simulations. Compare what you see to the CPMD run s and discuss similarities and differences between the trajectories. Cpmmd the script highlight.

The simulation should cover at least ps at a time step of 0. Printed majual are available on request. The ‘quench to the Born-Oppenheimer surface’ should not take more than 50 steps. With the thusly prepared restart you can now run a full production simulation.

Navigation and service

Therefore the wave-function does not need to be recalculated in every simulation step and the computational effort is reduced significantly. In case of plane waves you give the highest allowed fourier component, selected via the energy cutoff.

If you plan to use this material for your own courses, please include a reference to the master website of our ‘virtual lab’, http: For the simulation of water the BLYP functional is recognized as a good choice. For the given parameters, it should stay around 0. Now you should re-optimize the wavefunction and continue the simulation for more short runs. The fpmd temperature has been raised from K to K to get more proton transfers.


Convert the trajectory of the classical md into dcd format and visualize it with VMD see the Moldy manual, on how to do that. The full article is availble at manal Mon Oct 10 Homepage of the Forschergruppe Introductory article from Spektrum der Wissenschaft german: Further original articles on the same topic: Now you can start the calculation with: Therefore you should carefully examine the outputs of the simulations.

The reference run was done with CPMD version 3. You can do one of the following simulations:. The peculiarity of the Car-Parrinello approach is, that the wave-function is propargated following a ficticious Newtonian dynamic while performing the MD simulation.

Finally you need to specify the size of the basis set.

This is especially important for the CPMD runs, since they are extremely time consuming. For the pseudo-potentials given above, a cutoff of 25 Rydberg is recommended.
