More one-dimensional Hamiltonian simulations

On this page, another thermalization rule. In addition to the "wall-hitting" thermalizations, we thermalize the driver (but not the piston) every 1 time-unit. The marginal distribution of the piston coordinate and the marginal distribution of the driver coordinate should both be unchanged by this thermalization rule, though the autocorrelation times are strongly affected.
As confirmation of the validity of these simulations, predicted and actual histograms of the work done are shown at the end.
The first 2150 time units:
One Thermalized0.9.2150
cf The first 15600 time units when both piston and driver are thermalized (as on the previous page) images/BothThermalized0.9.15600
Another detail shot from the "driver-thermalized, only" simulation: One Thermalized0.9 detail
Predicted (yellow) and actual (red) histogram of work done; 200000 samples

Results when the driver is thermalized every 1 time units Results when thermalization occurs only when the state reaches one of the state-space constraints (in fact, mainly when the driver reaches the left-hand wall)
