Thank you for your response Dr. Comer.
I'd like to perform Langevin dynamics simulation (stochastic dynamis), but
not overdamped as Brownian dynamics.
If Langevin thermostat and Langevin dynamics are the same, why we call
Molecular dynamics that NAMD MD runs do with langevin thermostat?
Could you please help me to understand what is the real distinction between
MD simulations with Langevin thermostat and Langevin dynamics simulations?
Does MD with Langevin thermostat also have random force?
