I am trying to analyze the REMD trajectories and upon using script, I got the following files remd_temperature and remd_index files. Upon further reading, I learnt the remd_temperature file has data regarding replicas jumping from one temperature bath to another. remd_index file is used to make continuous trajectory files? Could someone explain to me what is the difference between the two?
