What are the differences between the individual simulations. In case of plane waves you give the highest allowed fourier component, selected via the energy cutoff.
The nature of vpmd hydrated excess proton fpmd water from Nature and the review of that article from the same journal. Goals of this exercise Insight in the Capabilities of Car-Parrinello molecular dynamics simulations Basic knowledge in setting up and performing Car-Parrinello-simulations Comparison of classical MD with Born-Oppenheimer-MD and Car-Parrinello-MD Grotthuss-mechanism of proton transport in water back to top Introduction Modern first priciples Car-Parrinello methods render it possible to simulate complex molecular systems, e.
The determination of the total maanual 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 equilibration works best, if you first run a ps simulation at K and use that restart to start the K run.
The full article is availble at http: The pseudotpotentials and plane wave cutoff have been changed to give much more accurate results at the expense of cpu time.
The simulation should cover at least ps at a time step of 0. Now you can start the calculation with: If you plan to use this material for your own courses, please include a reference to the master website of our ‘virtual lab’, http: Similar to classical MD-simulations, where you have to provide model potentials e. For the impatient, there also is a already equilibrated restart.
The ‘quench to the Born-Oppenheimer surface’ should not take manua, than 50 steps. The binary pseudopotential files have been replaced with text-mode files that can be read on all platforms.

Printed versions are available on request. You can do one of the mqnual simulations:. This method allows for an efficient modelling of extended systems, especially crystals or bulk liquids when using periodic boundary conditions. Some older reference trajectories are available on our FTP-Server.
With the thusly prepared restart you can now run a full production simulation. Please remember, that a running simulation does not automatically mean, that the simulation is correctly representing the intended system.
For the given parameters, it should stay around 0. 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.
For the simulation of water the BLYP functional is recognized as a good choice. Therefore the wave-function does not need to be recalculated in every simulation step and the computational effort is reduced significantly.
Otherwise stop the simulation with ‘ touch EXIT ‘, cf. Excerpt from a larger overview article on Car-Parrinello methodology.
Mon Oct 10 Use the script traj2xyz. Further original articles on the same topic: Modern first priciples Car-Parrinello methods render it possible to simulate complex molecular systems, e. If it becomes much larger, then you need to reoptimize the wavefunction, as you system is about to deviate mamual far from the Born-Oppenheimer Surface.

The default temperature has been raised from K to K amnual get more proton transfers. Proton Transport in Bulk Water. Introductory article from Spektrum der Wissenschaft german: For the pseudo-potentials given above, a cutoff of 25 Rydberg is recommended.
