DMD is an efficient method of computing molecular dynamic simulations. The primary efficiency that distinguishes DMD from "classical" molecular dynamics is the discretization of the potential function. Updates are done when a "collision" happens. A collision is defined as whenever the distance between a pair of centers reaches a potential step. DMD approaches classical MD in the limit as the number of potential steps increases. Simulations can be run at varying resolution from bead models to full atomic structures.



DMD programs are currently command line based, closed source and will be available for download soon.

Wiki Information

Trac is a minimalistic approach to web-based management of software projects. Its goal is to simplify effective tracking and handling of software issues, enhancements and overall progress.

All aspects of Trac have been designed with the single goal to help developers write great software while staying out of the way and imposing as little as possible on a team's established process and culture.

As all Wiki pages, this page is editable, this means that you can modify the contents of this page simply by using your web-browser. Simply click on the "Edit this page" link at the bottom of the page. WikiFormatting will give you a detailed description of available Wiki formatting commands.

"trac-admin yourenvdir initenv" created a new Trac environment, containing a default set of wiki pages and some sample data. This newly created environment also contains documentation to help you get started with your project.

You can use trac-admin to configure Trac to better fit your project, especially in regard to components, versions and milestones.

TracGuide is a good place to start.
