    Thermodynamic stability and dynamics via normal mode analysis of ices and clathrate hydrates have been investigated. The free energy of those solids is calculated from various components separately; the interaction energy at temperature 0 K, the vibrational free energy, and the configurational entropy arising from disordering of protons and cage occupation. This enables us to evaluate the thermodynamic stability of clathrate hydrates from only intermolecular interactions. It is also shown that this method is available to predict relative stability of ice polymorphs and their anomalous properties at low temperature.
