This directory (Three_Body_Stillinger_Weber__MD_335816936951_002) contains Stillinger-Weber(SW) potential
Model Driver written in C.
1. This is a direct extention of the standard Stillinger-Weber potential to support multiple species.
Usage of a subset of the supported species is valid. For example, if there are 3 species A, B and C
in the parameter file, the use of single species A (or B or C) or two species A and B (or A and C,
or B and C) are fine.
2. The functional form has been rewritten so as to separate the parameters to avoid inconvenience of using
this Model Dirver. The varible 'epsilon' in the standard SW potential is a dummy variable, so it is
combined with 'A' and 'lambda'. The 'cutoff' of the standard SW potential is determined implicitly
by 'cutoff' = 'a*sigma', where 'a' is a potential parameter. In this Model Driver, the 'cutoff' is
defined explicitly. By doing this, if 'sigma' is updated through 'PARAM_FREE_sigma' there is no needed
to update 'cutoff'.
Above all, compared to the standard SW potential, the following redefinitions have been made:
A := A*epsilon
lambda := lambda*epsion
gamma := gamma*sigma
rcut := a*sigma
Besides, an approximation is made:
lambda_ijk = sqrt(lambda_ij)*sqrt(lambda_ik),
and also we assume that the ideal angle 'thetea0' is the same between all 3-body interactions.
Then the SW potential for multiple species can be written as:
E = sum_{i,j>i} phi_2(rij) + sum_{i, j!=i, k>j} phi_3(rij, rik, theta)
phi_2(rij) = Aij*(Bij(rij/sigma_ij)^(-p) - (rij/sigma_ij)^(-q))
* exp(sigma_ij/(rij - rcutij))
phi_3(rij,rik,theta) = sqrt(lambda_ij)*sqrt(lambda_ik)(cos[theta] - cos[theta0])^2
* exp(gamma_ij/(rij - rcutij) + gamma_ik/(rik - rcutik))
3. One parameter file is needed, and the parameters should be given as:
first line: number of species
Then each line lists the following 9 parameters for the interaction between two species:
A(in ev) B p q sigma(in Angstrom) lambda(in eV) gamma(in Angstorm) costheta_0 cutoff
Note that one should list all the interactions for one species and then proceed to list all the
interaction for the next species. For example, if there are 3 species, then the parameters should
be in the following order,
(1,1)
(1,2) # (2,1) is the same as (1,2), so only list it once here
(1,3)
(2,2)
(2,3)
(3,3)
where, (i,j) means the parameters for species i and species j. There should be N*(N+1)/2 such
lines for N species.
The Model Driver complies with the KIM API standard, using four neihgbor handling methods: MI_OPBC_F,
NEIGH_PURE_F, NEIGH_RVEC_F, and CLUSTER and iterator or locator mode. It publishes its parameters
and supports optional computation of 'energy', 'forces', 'particleEnergy', 'process_dEdr',
and 'process_dE2dr2'. Its initializaton routine takes a KIM API object pointer and a pointer to a string
that contains all parameters which define a KIM Model based on this KIM Model Driver.
