SLLOD equations and Velocity Verlet

Dear Lammps-users,

I wonder if anyone knows whether the thermostatted SLLOD equations for shear flow are implemented with the velocity Verlet algorithm or whether it acn be used with a multiple time-step algorithm? According the manual it is implemented with a velocity verlet algorithm but the formulation is a bit cryptic.

Best Regards,

Sten Sarman

What is cryptic about this?

"As implemented in LAMMPS, they are coupled to a Nose/Hoover chain
thermostat in a velocity Verlet formulation, closely following the
implementation used for the fix nvt command."

And fix nvt is setup to work with rRESPA in LAMMPS if that’s also what you asking.
Aidan can verify …


Yes, since fix nvt works with rRESPA, so too does fix nvt/sllod.
