Molecular-dynamics simulations have been used to identify two cooperative atom-ejection mechanisms which increase sputtering yield. Their effects are analogous to the "thermal spike," "shock wave," and "reduced binding energy" sputtering mechanisms. They are examples of nonlinear, many-body effects in cascades which go beyond collisions between randomly moving particles.
