# SCALEE

SCALEE = [real]
Default: SCALEE = 1

Description: This tag specifies the scaling of the energies and forces.

For thermodynamic integration this parameter controls the coupling parameter ${\displaystyle \lambda }$.

This parameter is only used if SCALEE${\displaystyle \neq }$1.

Usually the thermodynamic integration is carried out from the ideal gas to the liquid state.

If the file DYNMATFULL exists in the calculation directory and {TAG|SCALEE}}${\displaystyle \neq }$1, the second order Hessian matrix is added to the force and thermodynamic integration from a harmonic model to a fully interacting system is carried out.
