Berendsen Thermostat - Basic Description
... The thermostat suppresses fluctuations of the kinetic energy of the system and therefore cannot produce trajectories consistent with the canonical ensemble ... decays with some time constant Though the thermostat does not generate a correct canonical ensemble (especially for small systems), for large systems on the order of hundreds or thousands of atoms/molecules, the ... In many instances, systems are initially equilibrated using the Berendsen scheme, while properties are calculated using the widely known Nosé-Hoover thermostat, which correctly ...
