Global Optimization by Adiabatic Switching
AbstractWe apply a recently introduced method for global optimization to determine the ground state energy and configuration for model metallic clusters. The global minimum for a given N–atom cluster is found by following the damped dynamics of the N particle system on an evolving potential energy surface. In this application, the time dependent interatomic potential interpolates adiabatically between the Lennard–Jones (LJ) and the Sutton–Chen (SC) forms. Starting with an ensemble of initial conditions corresponding to the ground state configuration of the Lennard–Jones cluster, the system asymptotically reaches the ground state of the Sutton–Chen cluster. We describe the method and present results for specific cluster size N = 15, when the ground state symmetry of LJN and SCN differ.
