[gmx-users] FEP and error estimation

Dear all

I was asking myself how to get an adequate error for FEP simulations.
g_analyze spits out two values:
The standard deviation (which seems to be not good for a correct error 
estimation) and std.dev./sqrt(n-1).
I now think, that the 2nd one is the method, Berk derived in his PhD 
thesis and therefore the better one(?). But I am not really sure about this.
Any comment?

Thank you
