Wolfgang Christian, and
The STP Hard Disks MD program simulates the dynamics of a system of hard disks. The default parameters are N=64 particles in a box of length L = 18.0 and a temperature T=1.0. The particles are initially in a regular array.
STP HardDisksMD is part of a suite of Open Source Physics programs that model aspects of Statistical and Thermal Physics (STP). The program is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double-clicking the stp_HardDisksMD.jar file will run the program if Java is installed on your computer. Additional programs can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, STP, or Statistical and Thermal Physics.
