Abstract

We present the latest results of our systematic studies of the solid-liquid phase transition in 2D classical many-particle systems interacting with the Yukawa potential. Our previous work [1] is extended by applying the molecular dynamic simulations to systems with up to 1.6 million particles in the computational box (for κ = 2 case). Equilibrium simulations are performed for different coupling parameters in the vicinity of the expected melting transition (Γmκ=2 ≈ 415) and a wide range of observables are averaged over uncorrelated samples of the micro-canonical ensemble generated by the simulations.
