[lammps-users] question about the displace_atoms command

Hi all,

from the documentation page, it says not to move atoms on top of other atoms, so when i move the atoms out of the box, do they remap back to their orignal region or remap back randomly in the simulation box?


If the system is periodic, then they do remap back into the box.
But it's not random. It's precisely where their periodic image is.
