The Gay-Berne model [1] is used extensively in simulations of liquid crystalline systems. The Gay-Berne model is an anisotropic form of the Lennard-Jones 12:6 potential.

where, in the limit of one of the particles being spherical, gives:




A modification of the Gay-Berne potential has recently been proposed that is said to result in a 10-20% improvement in computational speed, as well as accuracy [2].
