The theory of bonded and nonbonded interactions is the same:
An emperical forcefield.

Never the less MM can "only" be used to do geometry optimization,
normal mode analysis and stuff like that.
In MD the forcefield is used to solve the equations of motions
of the system. hence you can study it's dynamics.
