Continuous versus discrete for interacting carbon nanostructures

Hilder, Tamsyn; Hill, James M


Intermolecular forces between two interacting nanostructures can be obtained by either summing over all the individual atomic interactions or by using a continuum or continuous approach, where the number of atoms situated at discrete locations is averaged over the surface of each molecule. This paper aims to undertake a limited comparison of the continuum approach, the discrete atom-atom formulation and a hybrid discrete-continuum formulation for a range of molecular interactions involving a...[Show more]
