This is part of the analysis module

This can be used to output the a histogram using the weighted histogram technique

This shortcut action allows you to calculate a histogram using the weighted histogram analysis technique. For more detail on how this the weights for configurations are computed see REWEIGHT_WHAM


The following input can be used to analyze the output from a series of umbrella sampling calculations. The trajectory from each of the simulations run with the different biases should be concatenated into a single trajectory before running the following analysis script on the concatenated trajectory using PLUMED driver. The umbrella sampling simulations that will be analyzed using the script below applied a harmonic restraint that restrained the torsional angle involving atoms 5, 7, 9 and 15 to particular values. The script below calculates the reweighting weights for each of the trajectories and then applies the binless WHAM algorithm to determine a weight for each configuration in the concatenated trajectory. A histogram is then constructed from the configurations visited and their weights. This histogram is then converted into a free energy surface and output to a file called fes.dat

tested on v2.8

The script above must be run with multiple replicas using the following command:

mpirun -np 4 plumed driver --mf_xtc alltraj.xtc --multi 4
