A Quadrature-Rule Type Approximation to the Quasi-Continuum MethodMultiscale Modeling & Simulation
AbstractA quadrature-rule type approximation of the quasi-continuum method for atomistic mechanics is presented. Simple analysis and computational experiments are presented that illustrate that the new method has, for the same accuracy, lower complexity compared to not only the quasi-continuum method, but also to cluster-type approximations of that method. A discussion about some implementation issues connected to the new method is also provided.
