Velocity Distribution function of molecule at low temperature

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.
