@article{Zhang2018DeePCGCC, title={DeePCG: Constructing coarse-grained models via deep neural networks.}, author={Linfeng Zhang and Jiequn Han and Han Wang and Roberto Car and Weinan E}, journal={The Journal of chemical physics}, year={2018}, volume={149 3}, pages={ 034101 } }

We introduce a general framework for constructing coarse-grained potential models without ad hoc approximations such as limiting the potential to two- and/or three-body contributions. The scheme, called the Deep Coarse-Grained Potential (abbreviated DeePCG), exploits a carefully crafted neural network to construct a many-body coarse-grained potential. The network is trained with full atomistic data in a way that preserves the natural symmetries of the system. The resulting model is very…
