[lammps-users] integrator for NVT ensemble

Dear all,

Just a quick (and most likely very basic) question: what is the integrator LAMMS uses when the commands run_style verlet and fix NVT are given? This question arises from the fact that, if I am not mistaken, the original velocity verlet scheme does not solve the Nose-Hoover thermostat.



If you do fix style NVE, then you are doing standard velocity-Verlet.
If you do fix style NTV, then you are doing Nose Hoover NVT in a velocity-Verlet
framework. I.e. NH-NVT can be done in other integration schemes as well.
