Re: [lammps-users] Diffusion Coefficient in 2d

Both the input scripts have comments about the prefactors
for 2d.  For MSD 4 changes to 6 for 2d -> 3d.  The 10 is
due to the spacing (in time) of the vector points being 10
timsteps.  For VACF 0.5 is 2d.  I believe 1/3 is 3d, but
you should check.

In the lammps/examples/DIFFUSE directory, I found that in both cases for calculating diffusion coefficient using VACF or MSD, there is a factor of 0.5 for vacf and 10/4 for msd. What is the reason behind this?

In the case of 3d simulations, do we not factor the 0.5 and 10.4?
