19 to display the atomic arrangements of the nanoclusters. In these two-dimensional figures I have chosen a rotation of each cluster that offers, in my opinion, the best view for an interested person to correctly visualize the three-dimensional configuration. Even carefully chosen rotations may lead an interested person unsure of the atomic configuration as atoms in the foreground hide other atoms further back. Hence, particularly for configurations of low symmetry and/or larger configurations that is only shown from one angle (whether in this book or elsewhere in the literature) I recommend that the atomic coordinates are obtained and uploaded into a graphical package is used where the nanoclusters can be rotated.

Note that each run is initialized using a different random seed, which determines the exact sequence of pseudorandom numbers used during any MC algorithm, typically leading to a different starting configuration (a different point on the energy landscape) and a different pathway across the energy surface. Afterward, algorithms based on interacting, multiple walkers [50] or a population of trial solutions (candidate structures) [51] will be discussed. Perhaps the simplest approach to exploring a landscape is to evaluate it at a number of sample points that are chosen at random or on an evenly spaced predefined grid.

For a nanocluster composed of three atoms, there are three variables: the interatomic distances between the first atom and the other two, r12 and r13, as well as the angle, θ23, made by these lengths or the distance between the latter two atoms, r23. 0 Å, where the maximum interatomic distance has been doubled in order to allow for a linear arrangement, for example, θ23=0° or 180°. For nanoclusters composed of identical atoms, the search can be restricted further; for example, if atoms 2 and 3 are identical, then switching atoms 2 and 3 would yield the same configuration; many of such duplicates can be avoided by applying the constraint r12 ≤ r13.
