Truncated non-bonded potentials can yield unphysical behavior in molecular dynamics simulations of interfaces

(A Tricky issue with…) Molecular Dynamics Simulations of Interfaces

This work is about the dreadful things that happen to those (well, basically everyone…) who dare truncating non-bonded terms when performing molecular dynamics simulations of interfaces. It has recently been accepted in The Journal of Physical Chemistry (have a look at the .pdf or online), and involves quite a number of people across several institutions: (chiefly) the University College London [UK], the University of Lyon [France] and Tsinghua University [China].
