[lammps-users] Bond Breaking and Bond Creation Potentials

Hi Steve and Paul,

I’m just wondering if you have started development to implement bond breaking and bond creation potentials in the new version of LAMMPS.

We have a quartic/harmonic bond-breaking potential essentially done, but
it likely won't make it into the next release (end of March). But probably
as a patch soon after.

Bond creation is much more difficult. Mark Stevens ([email protected]) has
a routine to do this for a particular potential in the older LAMMPS (2001),
but we haven't generalized it for the current LAMMPS.
