AMBER: TI with sander

Dear all,

I have a few questions w.r.t thermodynamic integration with sander:

o Is it correct that, if atoms disappear, the backward direction can not
be simulated. I.e. the hysteresis between the forward and the backward
direction, as an error estimate, can not be computed?
How should one estimate the error then?

o What meaning do dV/dL values have for lambda=0 and lambda=1 ?

o Where in the source code can I find the paragraphs relevant for TI?

Many thanks in advance,

Oliver Hucke, Dr.
