This utility is used for running replica exchange hybrid lattice/all-atom simulations.

A detailed explanation of the methodology is found in the documentation for the version for single runs,

The options -latpar, -aapar, and -evalpar for the lattice and all-atom modeling parts are the same as in Hybrid Monte Carlo options are given with -mcpar. Additional options for replica exchange sampling are very similar to the corresponding options in

In addition to the temperatures used in the replica exchange Metropolis criteria the hybrid method also requires corresponding temperatures for the lattice simulations. The lattice run temperatures are given with -ltemp or through a condition file with -condfile.
