This is an abstract

Foresight Conference on Molecular Nanotechnology.

available on the web.
Computer simulations provide an important research tool for molecular
nanotechnology by creating a virtual design space in which experimentally
inaccessible physical domains can be explored. Currently available
engineering simulations can be classified as continuum finite element,
atomistic, and quantum simulation methods according to the granularity of
the physical system models. In this talk, we will review the current
research development at Stanford Multiscale Simulation Laboratory to
develop multiscale simulation methodology which can seamlessly combine
these methods. We will also discuss about the current research on
nanomechanics using atomistic and quantum simulations.
