A new Monte Carlo method for getting the density of states of atomic cluster systems.

Abstract

A novel Monte Carlo flat histogram algorithm is proposed to get the classical density of states in terms of the potential energy, g(E(p)), for systems with continuous variables such as atomic clusters. It aims at avoiding the long iterative process of the Wang-Landau method and controlling carefully the convergence, but keeping the ability to overcome… (More)
