It is discussed how we can describe various phenomena in medium energy nuclear collisions, such as multifragmentation, by using microscopic dynamical models. Basic ideas of Antisymmetrized Molecular Dynamics (AMD) are explained in order to show the important quantum features and their relation to various fragmentation mechanisms. Furthermore, an important problem about the nuclear equation of state and the observables in nuclear collisions is studied with AMD. The statistical property of molecular dynamics is also discussed.
