The following is a list of '''thermostats''' used to maintain (more or less) constant the average [[temperature]] in [[molecular dynamics]] simulations. Note that thermostats may introduce artificial behaviour into the system so one has to be careful. It is probably worthwhile using
 
a thermostat that correctly samples the [[canonical ensemble]], for example, the [[Bussi-Donadio-Parrinello thermostat]].
