Introducing HOOMD-blue

HOOMD-blue is a Python package that performs Molecular Dynamics and hard particle Monte Carlo simulations. HOOMD-blue is general and can be used to model nanoparticles, bead-spring polymers, active mater, and many other types of systems. This tutorial introduces the core concepts in HOOMD-blue using hard particle self-assembly as an example. Later tutorials will expand on these concepts for other types of simulations.


This tutorial assumes you have some familiarity with the Python programming language.

This tutorial is written with jupyter. You can download the source from the hoomd-examples repository.
