Lattice Dynamics via Emscripten

Conduct lattice dynamics calculations for atomic models.

The code to run molecular simulations on this site is written in C++. emscripten is used to compile the programs with WebAssembly as the target; the WebIDL Binder is used to expose an object-oriented interface to the C++ code. Performance in JavaScript is slower than the same prorgams compiled as C programs, but still dramatically faster than a native JavaScript implementation. The page runs a few steps at a time in order to return control to the browser after during the simulation.
