Lammps Simulation

Hello Lammps-users,

I am a beginner in lammps and I need to know the basics of this
simulation tool (LAMMPS)
-how to set the input file (case of a nanoparticle)
-which are the parameters to introduce
-how to simulate a nanoparticle

I want to simulate the influence of the type of interatomic potential
on the structural and energetic properties of silicon nanoparticles.
as potential (stillinger weber potential,EDIP)
using LAMMPS.


You’ll need to read the beginning sections of the LAMMPS
manual, and look at the many example scripts
that are provided. See the examples/colloid directory
for example.
