Brief introduction to molecular dynamics (in Danish)

These videos represent 2 lectures from my course Molecular Statistics, that gives a brief introduction to Lennard-Jones Potentials and molecular dynamics.  The lectures are in Danish.  The lecture notes can be found here.

a. Modeling gases and liquids
b. Newtons equation of motion underlies molecular dynamics-part 1
c. The Lennard-Jones Potential
d. Newtons equation of motion underlies molecular dynamics-part 2
e. Initialization
f. Computing the force and taking the step
g. The step size (The video contains a small mistake which is corrected here)
h. Equilibration and constant E vs constant T simulations

Technical details
The first video was made with ScreenFlow and Molecular Workbench
The remaining videos was made with an iPad, Apple head-phones, the Explain Everything app, and a Bamboo Stylus.

It'll be interesting to see how this works out :) I've begun watching them.
