Abstract

The thermal and geometric properties of four mono- and two polyvalent metallic clusters were studied using a Brownian type molecular dynamics simulation. For the thermal property, a specific heat at constant volume C v was reported, and the solid liquid like transition was studied by scrutinizing the characteristics. The root mean square relative bond length fluctuation was calculated as a function of increasing temperature. The thermal change reflected the movement of atoms, which was a relevant parameter in understanding the phase transition in clusters.
