Trajectory-based machine learning method and its application to molecular dynamics


Han, Ruocheng; Luber, Sandra (2020). Trajectory-based machine learning method and its application to molecular dynamics. Molecular Physics, 118(19-20):e1788189.

Abstract

Ab initio molecular dynamics (AIMD) has become a popular simulation technique but long simulation times are often hampered due to its high computational effort. Alternatively, classical molecular dynamics (MD) based on force fields may be used, which, however, has certain shortcomings compared to AIMD. In order to alleviate that situation, a trajectory-based machine learning (TrajML) approach is introduced for the construction of force fields by learning from AIMD trajectories. Only nuclear trajectories are required, which can be obtained by other methods beyond AIMD as well. We developed an easy-to-use MD machine learning package (TrajML MD) for instant modelling of the force field and system-focussed prediction of molecular configurations for MD trajectories. It consumes similar computational resources as classical MD but can simulate complex systems with a higher accuracy due to the targeted learning on the system of interest.
