FRESAN Mode Analysis (coming soon)
The FREquency-SElective ANharmonic Mode Analysis eliminates the need for harmonic and quasi-harmonic approximations in the analysis of molecular vibrations. This is of particularly critical for the analysis of highly anharmonic low-frequency vibrations that are thermally excited at room temperature and therefore explore their potential energy surface far beyond a single potential energy minimum.
This software package performs a spatially resolved analysis of pairwise additive interactions and intermolecular vibrations on atomistic molecular dynamics simulations in an explicit solvent. Combined with the two-phase thermodynamics (2PT) approach proposed by Goddard and co-workers, this allows us to generate a 3D map of local contributions to the solvation free energy, enthalpy and entropy in addition to various other structural and dynamic properties.
This program combines the Aggregation Volume Biased Monte Carlo algorithm from Chen & Siepmann with fully customizable tabulated pairwise interaction potentials between distinct types of particles. This allows to simulate processes such as liquid-liquid phase separation for 100,000 particles on micrometer length scales.
