OCCAM is a program for Molecular Dynamics Simulations able to perform Hybrid Particle-Field (PF) Theoretical Molecular Dynamics simulations. This recent PF technique combines molecular dynamics (MD) and self consistent field theory (SCF). Read More

The name OCCAM is not an acronym but it is the latinized spelling Ockham. William of Ockham, also known as the Doctor Invincibilis, was an English Franciscan friar. He is considered to be one of the major figures of medieval thought and was at the centre of the major intellectual and political controversies of the fourteenth century. Among many things, he is known for his OCCAM razor:

“Frustra fit per plura quod potest fieri per pauciora”.
The Occam’s razor can be considered as the first statement of a “Coarse Graining Philosophy”.
