About the Authors
  • Written by two specialists with over twenty-five years of experience in the field, this valuable text presents a wide range of topics within the growing field of nonequilibrium molecular dynamics (NEMD). It introduces theories which are fundamental to the field - namely, nonequilibrium statistical mechanics and nonequilibrium thermodynamics - and provides state-of-the-art algorithms and advice for designing reliable NEMD code, as well as examining applications for both atomic and molecular fluids. It discusses homogenous and inhomogenous flows and pays considerable attention to highly confined fluids, such as nanofluidics. In addition to statistical mechanics and thermodynamics, the book covers the themes of temperature and thermodynamic fluxes and their computation, the theory and algorithms for homogenous shear and elongational flows, response theory and its applications, heat and mass transport algorithms, applications in molecular rheology, highly confined fluids (nanofluidics), the phenomenon of slip and how to compute it from basic microscopic principles, and generalized hydrodynamics.

    • The only book on the topic that discusses fundamental theory, numerical algorithms, and illustrative applications of nonequilibrium molecular dynamics simulation (NEMD)
    • Contains detailed discussion of many issues that are often not discussed in depth or are scattered through the research literature
    • Includes illustrative computer simulations used to calculate relevant transport properties of fluids out of equilibrium

    Billy D. Todd, Swinburne University of Technology, Victoria
    Billy D. Todd undertook his bachelor and doctoral studies in physics at the University of Western Australia and Murdoch University in Perth, Australia. He then completed postdoctoral appointments at the University of Cambridge and the Australian National University, before moving to the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Melbourne in 1996. In 1999 he took up an academic appointment at Swinburne University of Technology, Victoria where he is currently Professor and Chair of the Department of Mathematics. His research focus is on statistical mechanics, nonequilibrium molecular dynamics and computational nanofluidics. He is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Physics and a former President of the Australian Society of Rheology.
