About LAMMPS

LAMMPS (Large-scale Atomic/Molecular Massively Parallel Simulator) is an open-source molecular dynamics simulator written in C++ from Sandia National Laboratories and is designed for parallel machines. LAMMPS models an ensemble of particles in a liquid, solid or gaseous state. It can model atomic polymeric, biological, metallic, or mesoscale systems using a variety of force fields and boundary conditions and is easily extensible.
