Stochastic Constrained Extended System Dynamics for Solving Charge Equilibration Models

21 May 2020 Tan Songchen Leven Itai An Dong Lin Lin Head-Gordon Teresa

We present a new stochastic extended Lagrangian solution to charge equilibration that eliminates self-consistent field (SCF) calculations, eliminating the computational bottleneck in solving the many-body solution with standard SCF solvers. By formulating both charges and chemical potential as latent variables, and introducing a holonomic constraint that satisfies charge conservation, the SC-XLMD method accurately reproduces structural, thermodynamic, and dynamics properties using ReaxFF, and shows excellent weak- and strong-scaling performance in the LAMMPS molecular simulation package...
