INTUITION about ANNEALING

  • With Amihai Silverman, A. Silverman and J. Adler, ``Animated simulated annealing'', (1992) Computers in Physics, 6, 277-281, interactive code for Lennard-Jones groundstate search, used in Computational Physics classes,
  • Extension with Sasha Berengoltz to a ``genetic'' master-slave algorithm, J. Adler and A. Berengoltz ``A parallel algorithm for groundstate search using sequential communications'', in ``Recent Developments in Computer Simulation Studies in Condensed Matter Physics, XIII'', Springer,(2000) edited by D. Landau, S. P. Lewis and B. Schuttler, p. 71.
  • Glassball analog simulation: J. Adler, ``A Walk in Phase Space: Solidification into Crystalline and Amorphous States'' (1999) Am. J. Physics, 67, 1145-8.
  • Glassball analog images of defects and grain boundaries by Netta Elad

    THESE WERE EASY! all particles spherical! Domains dissolve with little effort.
                
    Now - change particle shape.....
    to long liquid crystal molecules
    and some spherical colloids...
