Next: Homework Up: Off-lattice Monte-Carlo Simulations. Lennard-Jones Previous: Detailed balance


Cutting-off the Lennard-Jones potential leads to: Check the correct answer and explain.
Would the following modifications of the MC algorithm described in this lecture still satisfy the detailed balance? Why?
We try to move the odd numbered particles twice as frequent as the odd particles.
The maximum allowed displacement along x is three times larger, than along y
Only displacements in positive x or y directions are allowed.
