We show that a recently introduced stochastic thermostat [J. Chem. Phys. 126 (2007) 014101] can be considered as a global version of the Langevin thermostat. We compare the global scheme and the local one (Langevin) from a formal point of view and through practical calculations on a model Lennard-Jones liquid. At variance with the local scheme, the global thermostat preserves the dynamical properties for a wide range of coupling parameters, and allows for a faster sampling of the phase-space.

Abstract

We show that a recently introduced stochastic thermostat [J. Chem. Phys. 126 (2007) 014101] can be considered as a global version of the Langevin thermostat. We compare the global scheme and the local one (Langevin) from a formal point of view and through practical calculations on a model Lennard-Jones liquid. At variance with the local scheme, the global thermostat preserves the dynamical properties for a wide range of coupling parameters, and allows for a faster sampling of the phase-space.
