We discuss dynamical properties of Yukawa systems, i.e., systems of particles interacting through Yukawa (i.e., screened Coulomb) potentials. Self-diffusion coefficients and wave dispersion relations are obtained from time and space correlations of various physical quantities evaluated from molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. Yukawa systems are used as models for charged dust particles immersed in plasmas or colloidal particles suspended in electrolytes.
