# espressopp.analysis.Temperature¶

Calculate the temperature of the system (in $$k_B T$$ units).

espressopp.analysis.Temperature(system)
Parameters: system (shared_ptr) – system object temperature real

Temperature of the system of $$N$$ particles is calculated as:

$T = \frac{1}{N_f} \sum^N_{i=1} m_i v_i^2,$

where $$m_i$$ and $$v_i$$ are the mass and velocity of a particle $$i$$.

$$N_f = 3N$$ is the number of the system’s degrees of freedom.

Example:

>>> # declare an object, e.g., T:
>>> T   = espressopp.analysis.Temperature(system)
>>>
>>> # later in your script compute temperature and print it:
>>> print T.compute()
