W±² D³ W´ N´´µ QM M´¶±³µ·? I Analytical MD potentials have shortcomings in their predictive power, and often fail for configurations not included in the fitting process. I Also, input from more accurate methods is required during the potential fitting process, which needs to be carried out for each pair of chemical elements in the system. I This lecture will give a short overview on methods based on quantum mechanics (QM), which can be used both within ab initio molecular dynamics methods or as input for fitting. I
