Excerpt from a larger overview article on Car-Parrinello methodology. For the pseudo-potentials given above, a cutoff of 25 Rydberg is recommended.
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. Compare what manuap see to the CPMD run s and discuss similarities and differences between the trajectories.
You can do one of the following simulations:. What are the differences between the individual simulations.

In a Car-Parrinello MD simulation, however, the interactions are calculated directly from the electron structure in every time step. So you should carefully plan how to schedule the individual simulations. Use the script traj2xyz. The manuap pseudopotential files have been replaced with text-mode files that can be read on all platforms.
Protonenwanderung im virtuellen Labor. The 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. 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.
If you plan to use this material for your own courses, please include a reference to the master website of our ‘virtual lab’, http: The interactions in such complex systems can not be easily described by fixed, parametrized potentials, like it is usually done for classical molecular dynamics MD simulations.
You can do one of the following simulations: For the impatient, there also is a already equilibrated restart. Feel free to contact me at axel. In case of plane waves you give the highest allowed fourier component, selected via the energy cutoff.

Finally you need to specify the size of the basis set. For the given parameters, it should stay around 0.
Convert the final configuration from the classical md-simulation into the xyz-format and use the xyz2cpmd. The following tutorial was adapted and translated from our website with exercises in theoretical chemistry and biochemistry for undergraduate students in chemistry and biochemistry. For the simulation of water the BLYP functional is recognized as a good choice.
The pseudotpotentials and plane wave cutoff have been changed to give much more accurate results at the expense of cpu time.

Mon Oct 10 Use the script highlight. Rate the computational effort of all methods. Homepage of the Forschergruppe The equilibration works best, if you first run a ps simulation at K and use that restart to start the K run.
This is especially important for the CPMD runs, since they are extremely time consuming. Now you can start the calculation with: The reference run was done with CPMD version 3. Otherwise stop the simulation with ‘ touch EXIT ‘, cf.
