Abstract / Description of output

We present a Monte Carlo technique for sampling from the canonical distribution in molecular dynamics. The method is built upon the Nosé-Hoover constant temperature formulation and the generalized hybrid Monte Carlo method. In contrast to standard hybrid Monte Carlo methods only the thermostat degree of freedom is stochastically resampled during a Monte Carlo step.
