The present work on the molecular dynamics method covers the theoretical background of the method and gives practical examples to demonstrate its capabilities and limitations.The work focusses on topics which reveal fundamental mechanisms associated with fracture processes. Moreover, promising hybrid methods based on a concurrent atomistic/continuum coupling are reviewed since they combine accuracy and efficiency in a most favorable manner.
