Clusters are quite important at various situations in heavy-ion collisions and in excited low-density nuclear matter. Antisymmetrized molecular dynamics has been improved to take into account the correlations to form light clusters such as deuterons and α particles. The present status of this approach for the description of multifragmentation is reported. Calculated results demonstrate strong impacts of clusters in various observables including those usually regarded as probes of the density dependence of symmetry energy.
