Dear all,

In classical molecular dynamics simulation initial velocities are generated using the so called Maxwell distribution.
At low temperature it's no longer effective, so I'm wandering whether there is a similar way to generate velocities at low temperature taking into account quantum effects, like using the Fermi-dirac distribution ?

Thank you,

Éric.

^I think you may find the answer you're looking for on page 11. Hope it helps!

Not sure, I think mods do that. In any case, eventually, people will stop answering once a question has been answered, so it falls off the page pretty quickly.
