Abstract

Multicanonical molecular dynamics simulations are applied, for the first time, to study the liquid-solid and solid-solid transitions in Lennard-Jones (LJ) clusters. The transition temperatures are estimated based on the peak position in the heat capacity versus temperature curve. For LJ 31, LJ 58 and LJ 98, our results on the solid-solid transition temperature are in good agreement with previous ones. For LJ 309, the predicted liquid- solid transition temperature is also in agreement with previous result.
