I This highlights the motivation behind using analytical potential functions U AP e in the classical MD approach as parametrizations of the averaged ground state electronic potential. I In contrast, in AIMD methods the electronic potential is always evaluated for the positions of the nuclei either at ground state (Born-Oppenheimer) or as a dynamical system (Ehrenfest). Notes

Ehrenfest MD I In the case of Ehrenfest MD, the forces are calculated “on-the-fly” as the nuclei are propagated using classical mechanics. I They can be numerically solved simultaneously from the coupled set of quantum/classical equations M I ¨ R I ( t ) = - I Z Ψ * H e
