Reading material on potential energy

Dear Lammps users
I’m looking for material ( book, research papers, etc) to read on potential energies used for modeling aluminum based composite materials via Lammps
Can anyone please advise


What types of matrix materials?

Reax force field might be a good option to try.


I’m currently working on MEAM potential to model aluminum alloy
I need more information on potential functions in general and the ones used for aluminum based composites in specific as my thesis topic is in such composites
