Since the first edition only five years ago, the simulation world has changed significantly -- current techniques have matured and new ones have appeared. This new edition deals with these new developments; in particular, there are sections on:Transition path sampling and diffusive barrier crossing to simulaterare eventsDissipative particle dynamic as a course-grained simulation techniqueNovel schemes to compute the long-ranged forcesHamiltonian and non-Hamiltonian dynamics in the context constant-temperature and constant-pressure molecular dynamics simulationsMultiple-time step algorithms as an alternative for constraintsDefects in solidsThe pruned-enriched Rosenbluth sampling, recoil-growth, and concerted rotations for complex moleculesParallel tempering for glassy Hamiltonians
Examples are included that highlight current applications and the codes of case studies are available on the World Wide Web. Several new examples have been added since the first edition to illustrate recent applications. Questions are included in this new edition. No prior knowledge of computer simulation is assumed.
Features:Incorporates problems throughout each chapter allowing students to reinforce their understanding of basic doctrine and to explore doctrine in greater depth.Presents information graphically through charts and diagrams to appeal to multiple learning styles and reinforce student comprehension.Includes all relevant statutes, rules, and constitutional provisions.Includes a comprehensive Teachers Manual with the authors suggestions for using chapter materials, the authors views about the text problems, and other supporting materials and references. Presents topics that otherwise overlap with coverage in Civil Procedure (e.g., subject matter jurisdiction) in a manner that leads to more advanced and interesting treatment.
