Abstract
The atomistic simulation of many processes in materials involves large-size model systems where different levels of complexity need to be described simultaneously. While accurate quantum mechanical simulations of large-size systems are usually not affordable, less computationally intensive classical models are not suitable for the description of many chemical processes. Hybrid (quantum/classical) modelling schemes are required in these circumstances. Here, we describe the Learn on the fly (LOTF) hybrid molecular dynamics scheme. Some technical aspects of this technique are illustrated through a series of examples of its applications to multiscale processes in silicon.
