The heat capacity is proportional to the second moment (variance) of the
<sigma(E)^2> = k*T^2*Cv

  Subject: [gmx-users] Calculate heat capacity

       I am doing a simple simulation ( protein in water). When I use
  g_energy to monitor the  energy change, there are several statistical
  printed on screen. I notice the last line is the heat capacity value. I
  like to know how does it to be calculated?  Is there any formula for it ?
  I want to write a program to calculate it by myself.
  Thanks for your help in advance.
