neigh_modify command

Dear users,

I want to know when I use neigh_modify deley 10 every 2, the neighbor list on which steps will be updated exactly? I read manual but could not understand it. Does the neighbor list updated in steps: 10, 12, 14, …?

Thanks in advance

The delay setting in general puts an interval between the last build and the first attempt to check or rebuild depending on the other settings. The every settings actually determine when to check if a neighbor list rebuild is required when check = yes.; so it might not rebuild if the skin trigger is not satisfied. If check= no then the neighbor list will always be rebuilt on the timesteps specified by every and delay.
