# A New Leapfrog Integrator of Rotational Motion. The Revised Angular-Momentum Approach

@article{Omelyan1999ANL, title={A New Leapfrog Integrator of Rotational Motion. The Revised Angular-Momentum Approach}, author={Igor Omelyan}, journal={Molecular Simulation}, year={1999}, volume={22}, pages={213-236} }

Abstract A new algorithm is introduced to integrate the equations of rotational motion. The algorithm is derived within a leapfrog framework and the quantities involved into the integration are mid-step angular momenta and on-step orientational positions. Contrary to the standard implicit method by Fincham [Mol. Sim., 8, 165 (1992)], the revised angular momentum approach presented corresponds completely to the leapfrog idea on interpolation of dynamical variables without using any…
