- Dear developers,
I'm a bit confused about some nuances of the MD.TempControl for NH thermostat.
Specifically why is there a difference between
The md file shows that the Given temperature for the first 1000 steps would be 300.0 in both cases, but from the third step the actual temperatures start to diverge.
I assume the first one is correct since this reflects what the manual says. I just want to understand the difference. I used velocity scaling previously so that is why I erroneously used the second notation which is closer to how its supposed to be for VS (minus the extra columns), but now I have some quite time consuming calculation using the second syntax which I'm reluctant to redo, before understanding if it is completely wrong or what has actually happened. The intention was obviously to have constant temperature in the first 1000 steps but do I actually have NVE or what happened?
