How to do simulation when two atoms exist in the same coordinate position in the lattice?

You cannot have two atoms at the same coordinate position. The idea behind fraction occupancy is that, in a sufficient large cell, some positions will be occupied "alternated" by two ...

Potential for LAMMPS Simulation

You are free to choose any combination of pair_styles for the atoms. However, the question of it making sense is an entirely different problem, and you would need to benchmark your simulations by ...

The Dynamic Constant Matrix for the Green Function in the Thermal Conductance Calculation

For phonon transport the Green function formalism is largely equivalent as for electrons. The primary change is that: $$ \begin{aligned} \mathbf H &\to \mathbf D \\ \mathbf S &\to \mathbf I \\ ...
