I'm using GMX 4.0.4 compiled in double-precision. I perform an equilibrating run, which goes well (300K). Then I perform a cooling run which is identical except that one of the atoms is coupled to a bath at 0K, where I get the following error message:
Source code file: nsgrid.c, line: 357
Range checking error:
Explanation: During neighborsearching, we assign each particle to a grid
based on its coordinates. If your system contains collisions or parameter
errors that give particles very high velocities you might end up with some
coordinates being +-Infinity or NaN (not-a-number). Obviously, we cannot
put these on a grid, so this is usually where we detect those errors.
Make sure your system is properly energy-minimized and that the potential
energy seems reasonable before trying again.
Variable ci has value -2147483648. It should have been within [ 0 .. 216 ]
In response to the suggestion within the message, my tiny three-atom molecule is optimized to a force of 1E-9.
I also turned off Dynamic Load Balancing, in the hope that this might help, but alas...
Any thoughts on what I might be doing wrong, and how I could check for it/them?
