Abstract We report results of molecular dynamics simulations of liquid water at the temperature T = 277 K for a range of high pressure. One aim of the study was to test the model Amoeba potential for the description of equilibrium structural properties and dynamical processes in liquid water. In comparing our numerical results with the Amoeba and TIP5P potentials, our results of ab initio molecular dynamics simulations and the experimental data reveal that the Amoeba potential reproduces…

Scaling law for crystal nucleation time in glasses.
Results of molecular dynamics simulation reveal that the structural ordering in glasses becomes observable over "experimental" time-scale for the range of phase diagram with high values of pressure, and finds that the scaled values of the nucleation time in glassy systems are collapsed onto a single line reproducible by the power-law dependence.

The results suggest that integral equation theory can be an effective and computationally inexpensive tool for assessing, based on the pair potential alone, whether new model systems are good candidates for exhibiting structural (and hence thermodynamic and transport) anomalies.
Relationship between structural order and the anomalies of liquid water
This work identifies a structurally anomalous region that encloses the entire range of temperatures and densities for which the anomalous diffusivity and thermal expansion coefficient of water are observed, and enables us to quantify the degree of structural order needed for these anomalies to occur.
