This course builds on “Molecular dynamics: the fundamentals” to dive into topics at the forefront of current research. It focuses on the treatment of nuclear quantum effects using path integral methods. Other topics include ab initio molecular dynamics, methodology for computationally efficient simulations, and enhanced sampling methods. The material will be illustrated with reading from current literature followed by discussions.
