Adaptive multistage integrators for optimal energy conservation in molecular simulations
FernándezPendás, M.; Akhmatskaya, E.; SanzSerna, J.M. (20161001)We introduce a new Adaptive Integration Approach (AIA) to be used in a wide range of molecular simulations. Given a simulation problem and a step size, the method automatically chooses the optimal scheme out of an available ... 
Adaptive Splitting Integrators for Enhancing Sampling Efficiency of Modified Hamiltonian Monte Carlo Methods in Molecular Simulation
Akhmatskaya, E.; FernándezPendás, M.; Radivojevic, T.; SanzSerna, J.M. (20171024)The modified Hamiltonian Monte Carlo (MHMC) methods, i.e., importance sampling methods that use modified Hamiltonians within a Hybrid Monte Carlo (HMC) framework, often outperform in sampling efficiency standard techniques ... 
Assessment of van der Waals inclusive density functional theory methods for layered electroactive materials
Lozano, A.; Escribano, B.; Akhmatskaya, E.; Carrasco, J. (20170101)Computationaldriven materials discovery requires efficient and accurate methods. Density functional theory (DFT) meets these two requirements for many classes of materials. However, DFTbased methods have limitations. One ... 
Atomistic Insight into Ion Transport and Conductivity in Ga/AlSubstituted Li$_7$La$_3$Zr$_2$O$_{12}$ Solid Electrolytes
García Daza, F.A.; Bonilla, M.R.; Llordés, A.; Carrasco, J.; Akhmatskaya, E. (20180109)Garnetstructured Li$_{7}$La$_{3}$Zr$_{2}$O$_{12}$ is a promising solid electrolyte for nextgeneration solidstate Li batteries.

Causality, 'superluminality', and reshaping in undersized waveguides
Sokolovski, D.; Akhmatskaya, E. (20121231)We analyse the reshaping mechanism leading to apparently 'superluminal' advancement of a pulse traversing an undersized section of a waveguide. For frequencies below the first inelastic threshold (cut off one), there are ... 
Classification of resonance Regge trajectories and a modified Mulholland formula
Sokolovski, D.; Akhmatskaya, E. (20111231)We employ a simple potential model to analyze the effects which a Regge trajectory, correlating with a bound or a metastable state at zero angular momentum, has on an integral cross section. A straightforward modification ... 
Combining stochastic and deterministic approaches within high efficiency molecular simulations
Escribano, B.; Akhmatskaya, E.; Mujika, J.I. (20131231)Generalized Shadow Hybrid Monte Carlo (GSHMC) is a method for molecular simulations that rigorously alternates Monte Carlo sampling from a canonical ensemble with integration of trajectories using Molecular Dynamics (MD). ... 
Complex angular momentum theory of statetostate integral cross sections: Resonance effects in the $F + HD \to HF(v' = 3) + D$ reaction
Sokolovski, D.; Akhmatskaya, E.; EcheverriaArrondo, C.; de Fazio, D. (20151231)Statetostate reactive integral cross sections (ICSs) are often affected by quantum mechanical resonances, especially near a reactive threshold. An ICS is usually obtained by summing partial waves at a given value of ... 
Computer software for understanding resonances and resonancerelated phenomena in chemical reactions
Sokolovski, D.; Akhmatskaya, E. (20141231)In numerical modelling of chemical reactions one calculates the scattering matrix for the required values of energy and angular momentum. Having done so, one still faces the nontrivial task of extracting detailed information ...
