Molecular-Dynamics Simulation Using the Modified Embedded-Atom Method
The MEAM potential is intended for use with metallic and covalently-bonded
The MEAM potential for an atom is built using terms describing parts of the
relationships between the atom and each of its neighbors, the number of which
is determined by a cutoff and/or screening function. Each type of pair-
wise term is summed over all the neighbors, and then used in expressions
describing the embedding energy and the repulsive energy of the atom.
Effectively, the MEAM potential is a many-body potential.
This class was adapted from LjMd3D.java by K.R. Schadel and A. Schultz in July
2005. Intitially, it employed a version of the embedded-atom method potential,
and was later adapted in February 2006 to use the modified embedded-atom method
