[lammps-users] Molecular dynamics basics

I am a graduate student in mechanical engineering. I am using LAMMPS and VMD to do simulations of solids(CNTs, silicon,germanium etc). However while using these tools(esp LAMMPS) I do not understand certain concepts as I lack a proper background in Molecular Dynamics. Could you please suggest me some good books or websites or any other learning sources on basics of MD or in particular that deals with basics of LAMMPS.

To learn basics of MD there are some good books…
