Velocity Rescaling

The velocity-rescaling option   (IEQFrq not zero) periodically rescales the velocities. It uses the equations

where n is the number of free atoms in the system, is Boltzmann's constant, is the temperature in K specified by the FINAltemperature parameter, denotes the velocity of atom i at time t, and angle brackets enclose a trajectory average over the time intervals between the rescalings.
