Pair potentials are not that bad: Water & Silica

One of the challenges in modeling water or silica is the figure out correct description of inter-atomic potential. Usually used models for water in-cooperate 3-body interactions and charges, B.Guillot has a review on the subject [doi]. However there are attempts to use only pair potential for water [doi], as well as for amorphous silica [doi].
