  • Read COLVAR file using pandas and formatting

    Sometimes it is convenient to read the COLVAR file (Plumed output) using pandas as it can act as a first step for machine learning based data analysis e.g. time-series forecasting, clustering, dimensionality reduction etc. You need to remove the #! FIELDS part from the header. The modified header looks like time meanfree_sin_chi1_75 meanfree_sin_chi1_76 meanfree_sin_chi1_77 meanfree_sin_chi1_78 […]

It’s philosophy is kind of similar to PCA (principal component analysis).  For more details check here. It is a very recently developed technique which has a lot of promise. tICA can separate slow degrees of freedom […]
