repulsive/hard sphere simulation

Date: Wed Nov 05 2003 - 15:07:21 CST

Hi All,
Sometime back i had written about doing MD with a hard sphere and the suggestion was to implement it as a r-12 potential as given below. Can anyone help me out as to how one can 'actually' implement this spherical harmonic boundary conditions code? where are these source file and are there any notes available?

I'd suggest modeling it as a very stiff "soft" interaction.
