GMX was use with the newest 3.3 version ..... and I got the point about
the negligibility of pV term.
But I had not expressed properly my doubts in the previous question:
In an NPT simulation is the exchange probability among replicas the same
as in NVT or does it change ? In my simulation I have 46 replica NOT
equally spaced (from 1K to 3 K), every couple of replica exchanges
actually, but the probability of mine has the shape of a decreasing
exponential, and the real question is: is it normal or dos it have to be
similar to that of a canonical REMD with all the probabilities falling in
the same range of values ?
If my exchange probability is fine, then, I van compute thermodynamic
quantities ... but if it's failed I have to understang exactly what's
going on .....
Moreover, apart from the already cited paper about REMC isobaric -
isothermal ensamble, I would be interested in the treatment of the theory
and the statistical mechanics of the problem, but unfortunately the
treniest treatement is the one of canonical distributions ... do you have
any suggestions regardin bibliography ?
