## Contents

## Description of the model

Nosé–Hoover thermostat is used to keep the temperature constant in the system. Equations of motion of the thermostated harmonic oscillator have the form:

where

- is the eigen frequency

- is the initial kinetic temperature of the system

- is the current kinetic temperature of the system

- is the velocity

- is the relaxation time

- - scale for

- - scale of stiffness for

## Phase-space trajectory of thermostated harmonic oscillator

The plot shows the phase space, i.e. the dependence

. The followng three parameters can be changed by the user:1) tau =

is the relaxation time2) stiff =

is the stiffness3) scale is a scale parameter for a plot

**The last slider allows to choose the number of pre-configured experiment.**
