Molecular dynamics simulation of anomalous self-diffusion for single-file fluids

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A simple and efficient algorithm for inducing anomalous self-diffusion in single-file fluids with molecular dynamics simulation is introduced. Such a method can be useful and complement existing techniques. It is shown that particle-wall collision with occasional longitudinal momentum reversal is a possible physical mechanism for allowing random forces into the system of confined fluids.
