-</​note> ​+But you can see it also as the **configurations** of T0=2 K and the one of T1=2.44 K are changing, thus improving the sampling at both temperature. 
 + </​note> ​
  
 +The script ''​01_adapt_files''​ performs the following operations:
 +
 +<note tip>
 +  - prunes the ''​log.lammps''​ file which contains a log of all exchanges between the replicas. Take only the steps for which we also have a dump of the atomic coordinates.
 +  - For all the ''​log.lammps.*''​ files from each replica take only the lines for which we also have a dump of the atomic coordinates. These lines are put in a file *.nxyz, one for each replica. Each line contains temperatures,​ potential energies, etc.
 +  - Compute the **q4** order parameter for all structure files and create ''​*.q4''​ files, one for each replica.
 +  - now paste the ''​*.nxyz''​ and the ''​*.q4''​ files into a file ''​t_q4_epot_etot.*.out''​ containing the dump of temperature,​ energy, q4 every 10000 steps.
 +</​note>​
 +
 +
 +===== Reordering the replica: one temperature,​ one file =====
 +
 +At this point, we have a set of ''​t_q4_epot_etot.*.out'',​ one for each replica (processor). But along each of these files, the temperatures change a lot due to the exchanges. So, we use the file ''​exchanges_nxyz.log''​ that keeps track of the exchanges, and tells us at a given timestep which replica has which temperature:​ we scramble the ''​t_q4_epot_etot.*.out''​ files, and at the end we will have one file for each temperature. This is accomplished by the script ''​02_reorder''​. ​
 +
 +<note tip>
 +  * Consider each file t_q4_epot_etot.*.out (processor by processor). Say you consider the number 5 (6th replica): ''​t_epot_q4_etot.5.out''​.
 +  * At the step 50000, the file shows the following line:
 +''​50000 6.7133746 -1.7636174 0.189 -1.7315099''​
 +
 +indicating a temperature of 6.7133746. ​
 +  * The file ''​exchanges_nxyz.log'',​ at the step 50000, gives us the following line:
 +''​50000 7 0 3 2 1 6 10 5 12 8 11 4 9 13 15 14''​
 +
 +indicating that at the 6th replica (column **7**), we have the temperature **6**, which is (see input file) T=6.63 K. Meaning that at step 50000, the thermostat is keeping replica 5 around the temperature T=6.63 K.
 +  * This means that this line has to be stored in the temperature file number **6**. ​
 +</​note>​
 +
 +At the end of the above procedure performed by the small script section:
 +<code bash>
 +NP=16
 +NP1=$[NP-1]
 +rm torder*
 +for repl in `seq 0 $NP1`
 +do
 +   echo $repl
 +   awk -v rep=$repl '​{r2=rep+2;​print $r2}' ​ < exchanges_nxyz.log ​ > rep_$repl
 +   i=0
 +   for a in `cat rep_$repl`
 +   do
 +        i=$[i+1]
 +        head -$i t_q4_epot_etot.$repl.out | tail -1  >> torder.$a
 +   done
 +done
 +</​code>​
 +
 +we will have a set of files, one for each temperature. The file **torder.6** (showing the temperature log around **T=6.63 K** shows something like that:

 +
 +As you see, the number of steps is not ordered. This is easily achieved by the last part of the script ''​02_reorder''​
 +
 +<code bash>
 +for repl in `seq 0 $NP1` 
 +do
 +    sort -nk1 torder.$repl > temp

 +===== Extract averages =====
 +Now we are ready to extract averages at each temperature. This is achieved by the m_* function **m_average** (hint: look for the code of this function in the file ''/​share/​apps/​m_functions.bash''​),​ which is used in the script ''​03_extract_allaverages''​.
 +
 +<code bash>
 +. /​share/​apps/​m_functions.bash
 +rm averages_t_q4_epot_etot
 +for a in torder.? torder.??
 +do
 + ​t=`m_average $a 2`
 + ​q4=`m_average $a 4`
 + ​epot=`m_average $a 3`
 + ​etot=`m_average $a 5`
 + echo $t $q4 $epot $etot  >> averages_t_q4_epot_etot
 +done
 +</​code>​
 +
 +At this point you have a file ''​averages_t_q4_epot_etot''​ with the corresponding averages for each temperature. ​
 +
 +
 +
 +===== ASSIGNMENTS =====
 +
 +<note important>​
 +  - Using ''​gnuplot'',​ plot the steps vs. q4 (columns 1 and 3) from the file ''​t_q4_epot_etot.0.out'',​ ''​t_q4_epot_etot.13.out'',​ ''​t_q4_epot_etot.15.out''​. Comment what you observe.
 +  - Compare using gnuplot the plot of the nsteps vs. potential energy (columns 1 and 4) for ''​t_q4_epot_etot.13.out''​ and ''​torder.13''​. Comment the differences
 +  - Plot the ''​q4''​ in ''​torder.0'',​ ''​torder.5'',​ ''​torder.10'',​ ''​torder.15''​. Comment the differences.
 +  - Using the averages file, try to reproduce figure 2, top panel of the paper  [[doi>​10.1063/​1.481671]].
 +  - ** ADVANCED **. Describe what you would need to reproduce Fig. 1 of the same paper. What does this figure show? Find the reference to this figure in the text of the paper. ​
 +  - ** ADVANCED **. Using the ''​torder.*''​ files, and using eq. (14), obtain Fig. 1 of the paper. ​
