The ‘quench to the Born-Oppenheimer surface’ should not take more than 50 steps. Convert the trajectory of the classical md into dcd format and visualize it with VMD see the Moldy manual, on how to do that. Temperature is controlled by rescaling of the cpm velocities, if the temperature differs more than 50 K from the configured value see the reference output file for what it should look like.

Navigation and service

So you should carefully plan how to schedule the individual simulations. The equilibration works best, if you first run a ps simulation at K and use that restart to start the K run.

Therefore you should carefully examine the outputs of the simulations. Compare what you see to the CPMD run s and discuss similarities and differences between the trajectories.


The full article is availble at manial The nature and transport mechanism of hydrated hydroxide ions in aqueous solution again from Nature plus a short review from the same journal and a more elaborate discussion of cpmr article from Angewandte Chemie.

Mabual determination of the total energy is done in the framework of density functional theory DFT utilizing plane waves basis functions to represent the valence electrons and pseudo-potentials to describe the atomic cores including the inner electrons. The nature of the hydrated excess proton in water from Nature and the review of that article from the same journal.

Homepage of the Forschergruppe In a Car-Parrinello MD simulation, however, the interactions are calculated directly from the electron structure in every time step.

Now you should re-optimize the wavefunction and continue the simulation for more short runs.

Now you can start the calculation with: Printed versions are available on request. Proton Transport in Bulk Water.

With the thusly prepared restart you can now run a full production simulation. The pseudotpotentials and plane wave cutoff have been changed to give much more accurate results at the expense of cpu time. Convert the final configuration from the classical md-simulation into the xyz-format and use the xyz2cpmd.

For the pseudo-potentials given above, a cutoff of 25 Rydberg is recommended. This method allows for an efficient modelling of extended systems, especially crystals or bulk liquids when using periodic boundary conditions. The forces are obtained from the gradients of the total electronic energy at the positions of the nuclei and thus forming a multi-particle potential.


Modern first priciples Car-Parrinello methods render it possible to simulate complex molecular systems, e. Otherwise stop the simulation with ‘ touch EXIT ‘, cf. The default temperature has been raised from K to K to get more proton transfers.

Similar to classical MD-simulations, where you have to provide model potentials e. Mon Oct 10 You can do one of the following simulations: What are the differences between the individual simulations.

The binary pseudopotential files have been replaced with text-mode files that can be read on mabual platforms. In case of plane waves you give the highest allowed fourier component, selected via the energy cutoff. The simulation should cover at least ps at a time step of 0. You can do one of the following simulations:. manyal

Use the script traj2xyz. 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. The peculiarity of the Car-Parrinello approach is, that the wave-function is propargated following a ficticious Newtonian dynamic while performing the MD simulation.

Therefore the wave-function does not need to be recalculated in every simulation step and the computational effort is reduced significantly.
