## Extended-system Hamiltonian is conserved

## Thus the probability distribution can be written

- it can be shown that the molecular positions and momenta follow a canonical (NVT) distribution if g = 3N+1

## s can be interpreted as a time-scaling factor

- ttrue = tsim/s
- since s varies during the simulation, each “true” time step is of varying length
