Molecular dynamics is a simulation technique modelling the motion of interacting particles at an atomistic level used to study a variety of dynamic and thermodynamic properties. In this lecture, an introduction to the essential concepts of classical molecular dynamic simulations is presented to reveal the heart and art of the method.

The lecture is an obligatory teaching test for those applying for admittance as docent (associate professor) and it should be possible for students and others with basic academic education in the relevant field to follow it. The lecture will last for 45 minutes and afterwards the audience may ask questions. The lecture will be given in English.
