We explore recent efforts to model the dynamics of sorbed molecules in
zeolites with either atomistic methods or lattice models. We discuss the as-
sumptions underlying modern atomistic and lattice approaches, and detail the
techniques and applications of modeling both rapid dynamics and activated
diffusion. We summarize the major findings discovered over the last several
years, and enumerate future needs for the frontier of modeling dynamics in
