This book presents an authoritative and in-depth treatment of potential energy landscape theory, a powerful analytical approach to describing the atomic and molecular interactions in condensed-matter phenomena. Drawing on the latest developments in the computational modeling of many-body systems, Frank Stillinger applies this approach to a diverse range of substances and systems, including crystals, liquids, glasses and other amorphous solids, polymers, and solvent-suspended biomolecules. Stillinger focuses on the topography of the multidimensional potential energy hypersurface created when a large number of atoms or molecules simultaneously interact with one another. He explains how the complex landscape topography separates uniquely into individual "basins," each containing a local potential energy minimum or "inherent structure," and he shows how to identify interbasin transition states—saddle points—that reside in shared basin boundaries. Stillinger describes how inherent structures and their basins can be classified and enumerated by depth, curvatures, and other attributes, and how those enumerations lead logically from vastly complicated multidimensional landscapes to properties observed in the real three-dimensional world. Essential for practitioners and students across a variety of fields, the book illustrates how this approach applies equally to systems whose nuclear motions are intrinsically quantum mechanical or classical, and provides novel strategies for numerical simulation computations directed toward diverse condensed-matter systems.

On August 20, 2015, a symposium at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory was held in honor of Berni J. Alder's 90th birthday. Many of Berni's scientific colleagues and collaborators, former students, and post-doctoral fellows came to celebrate and honor Berni and the ground-breaking scientific impact of his many discoveries. This proceedings volume includes contributions from Berni's collaborators and covers a range of topics, including the melting transition in the 2D hard disk system, non-equilibrium fluid relaxation, the role of fluctuations in hydrodynamics, glass transitions, molecular dynamics of dense fluids, shock-wave and finite-strain equation of state relationships, and applications of quantum mechanics in pattern recognition.

Computer Simulation Studies in Condensed-Matter Physics X is devoted to Prof. Masuo Suzuki's ideas, which have made novel, new simulations possible. These proceedings, of the 1997 workshop, comprise three parts that deal with new algorithms, methods of analysis, and conceptual developments. The first part contains invited papers that deal with simulational studies of classical systems. The second of the proceedings is devoted to invited papers on quantum systems, including new results for strongly correlated electron and quantum spin models. The final part contains a large number of contributed presentations.
