Title Numerical Methods for the Nanotechnology 
Participant  Attila Caglar , Michael Griebel 
Keywords  molecular dynamics, many-body potentials, particle methods, multilevel, parallelization 
Description  The simulation of nanostructured materials increased lately in importance and interest, since semiconductor feature sizes are expected to shrink to nanoscale in the next years. Maybe in the same period engineers will be able to develop nanostructured materials - that means materials with nanometer grain size. This new materials increase the material strength and durability dramatically.

Applications for Nanotubes
