This book stems from the American Chemical Society symposium, Large Scale Molecular Dynamics, Nascale, and Mesoscale Modeling and Simulation: Bridging the Gap, that delved into the latest methodologies and applications for largescale, multiscale, and mesoscale modeling and simulation. It presents real-world applications of simulated and synthesized materials, including organic-, irganic-, bio-, and namaterials, and helps readers determine the best method for their simulation. It gets vices up to speed quickly and helps experienced practitioners discover vel approaches and alternatives.
Richard B. Ross, PhD, has been a member of 3M Company's Corporate Materials Modeling Group since 1997. Dr. Ross's research at 3M focuses on applying computational chemical modeling methods to a wide range of research applications. He has coauthored thirty-three scientific articles, including five book chapters, and coedited a symposium proceedings book. Sanat Mohanty, PhD, is a research scientist at 3M Company's Corporate Research Lab, focusing on the development of materials by manipulating self-assemblies of small molecules. Dr. Mohanty has written more than a dozen peer-reviewed journal papers, three book chapters, plus a chapter in the Encyclopedia of Chemical Processing on mesoscale modeling and analysis.
