 I just saw that a new feature in namd is the stochastic velocity rescaling (thermostat (Bussi et al.).

Has anyone tried it for alchemical free energy calculations? (I am looking at you Brian since I know you do those 🙂 )

Common knowledge tends to be that Langevin is the best thermostat for Free Energy calculations. Does this new algorithm compare favorably with Langevin dynamics free energy calculations?
