HIGHLIGTHS ON THE COVER ARTICLE ON THE JOURNAL OF CHEMICAL PHYSICS

The cover of the 21st December 2010 issue of the Journal of Chemical Physics has been dedicated to the review article on the Polarizable Point Dipoles Method published as first article of the same issue. The article gives a deep overview of the algorithms used to efficiently implement the method in Molecular Dynamics Simulation codes. A particular focus is given on the use of damping schemes, which are of high importance for reproducing polarization at short range. Chloride in water is used to test the impact of damping on structural and electrostatic properties against Car-Parrinello Molecular Dynamics results. The article ranked third among the top 20 most downloaded articles of the Journal of Chemical Physics in December 2010 (see JCP top 20 most downloaded articles).
