  Using molecular dynamics simulations, we performed a numerical investigation of the diffusion of a monomer (adatom) on a metal surface. The system consists of a copper (110) surface and a single silver adatom. Several types of diffusion processes are observed, as simple jumps between neighbouring sites coexist with longer jumps extending over many sites. The numerical results are in good agreement with the Arrhenius behaviour for a large range of temperatures (from 300 to 500 K).
