Hello Nader,

I don't mean to sound patronizing, but temperature is defined for a "large" number of atoms, not one atom. I know people have tried to calculate this before, but are you really trying to get some measure of the kinetic energy of each atom?

Dear all:

I am trying to obtain temperature distribution of my system (actually

According to the previous discussions in the mail list, I found that
researchers are using different ways around this issue:

   1- Defining a constant parameter to the ?compute ke/atom?;

   2- Using ?compute temp/chunk? command;

   3- Using ?compute temp/profile? command.

Nevertheless, I cannot manage to find the proper procedure. I would be
thankful to receive your guides.

Many thanks,
