Thanks Justin, however,
>> I run a simulation of a solute in water. I have 2 question please:
>> 1- After NVT equilibrium, I see that all quantities like energies and
>> temperature become stable, except pressure. Should I continue till
>> also goes stable? or can I move forward and do it in production run?
> Pressure isn't a conserved quantity in NVT. It is in NPT (hence the P).
> Yes, but if a system goes to equilibrium in NVT, pressure should be
fluctuating around a stable value. For any system with defined N, T, V
there should be one value for pressure, is not it?
> 2- My interest production run is NVT, should I run 2th-step-equilibrium
>> with NPT also? or only NVT equilibration is enough?
