Title: Multibody Dynamics Algorithms for Biomolecular Simulations

This talk will feature a brief overview of multibody dynamics research and its applicability for biomolecular simulations. Overview and highlights of several efficient algorithms for dynamics analysis of multi-rigid and multi-flexible body systems as well as contact-impact problems will be presented. A discussion and some sample examples on applying these algorithms for biomolecular simulations  will be presented.
