Art Voter is a Laboratory Fellow in group T-1 in the Theoretical Division
at Los Alamos National Laboratory. His research is focused on development and
application of atomistic simulation methods for problems in chemistry, physics
and materials science. Currently his main interest is in the development of
accelerated molecular dynamics methods for reaching long time scales
in the simulation of complex infrequent-event systems.

Miscellaneous: (sorry -- these movies are not working so well at this time...)

Some of the complicated events that can take place on a small patch of silver surface with just a few simple defects. (This is why we develop accelerated molecular dynamics methods!)
