Yes, sorry about that. After sending those ABF questions, I remembered there was an NAMD forum.

Hi Kelly,

this is really a NAMD question, please use the NAMD list for this. That said, the boundaries you provide are those of the grid that is used to estimate the PMF: nothing is computed outside of those.

In ABF, is the PMF calculated if the molecule strays outside of the lowerboundary and upperboundary window? Say LB is 2 and UB is 4, and the molecule diffuses outside of that 2 and 4 window, what happens to the PMF calculations? Thanks!
