Dear Dr. Axel Kohlmeyer,

Hello Dr. Kohlmeyer. Thank you for your e-mail. 

I was curious if you could inform me a solution to obtain the exactly the same results in regards to trajectories if I rerun the same LAMMPS input script. 

I was curious if using the exactly the same random seed will reproduce the same results such as not changing the random seed of the velocity and dpd pairwise potential for every rerun. Thank you.

Dear All,

Hello. This is Masato Koizumi, and I am using LAMMPS for my MD simulations. 

I am currently running a LAMMPS input script that equilibrates polymer chains in a matrix.

I am using the same random seed every time I rerun my same input script. However, I am obtaining different values for the velocity and position coordinates in my dump files for every time I repeat the simulation run. Any hints in resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

​there is not enough information here to give a precise answer. there are *many* ways to produce inconsistent trajectories.
