Frames from the movie, more details in 2nd class.

Our FIRST MOVIE

  • For STATPHYS in Berlin (1992) I spoke on our group's first simulated annealing/molecular dynamics research project, (Silverman and Adler).
  • Lennard-Jonesium, with locally reflecting boundary conditions.
  • We made the movie with Fortran/PGPLOT and filmed it with a B&W video camera borrowed from the Low Temperature lab.
  • PGPLOT is a free-for-academic-use graphical library for c and FORTRAN.
  • The movie was prepared by placing and erasing fonts on the screen.
  • A set of later versions of the images from our paper in ``Computers in Physics'', (1992), which will also be discussed in more detail in the next class.
