Thanks for your answer.
I realized that the Time between transitions: 116.601 ps is calculated as:
total trajectory time/(#transitions per dihedral)
total time=1100 ps
Now, I was considering the trhisto.xvg output.
I interpret the data y(x) as number of dihedral angles (y) showing a
particular average time between transition (x), where x = totaltime
(1100ps)/(#trans of that dihedral +1).
I though this analysis was performed for each dihedral of the index file, so
I espected a sum of all the y values in the trhisto equal to 1180 ( the
I found a sum of 881.
Have you any comment?
I tried to evaluate an average conformation lifetime <t> as follows:
>From (x,y) values in trhisto:
<t>=( sum of x*y )/881
that corresponds to an average of the abscissa values, weighted for the
dihedral fraction y/881.
I obtained <t>=218.48 ps.
Do you think this value is meaningful?
