temperature command


temperature T 


temperature 2.0 


This command sets the temperature as used in various applications. The typical usage would be as part of a Boltzmann factor that alters the propabilities of event acceptance and rejection.

The units of the specfied temperature should be consistent with how the application defines energy. E.g. if used in a Boltzmann factor where a kT factor scales the energy of a Hamiltonian defined by the application, then this command is really defining kT and the specified value should have the units of energy as computed by the Hamiltonian.

Restrictions: none

This command can only be used as part of applications that allow for a temperature to be specified. See the doc pages for individual applications defined by the app_style command for further details.

Related commands: none


The default temperature is 0.0.
