PLUMED is an open source library for free energy calculations in molecular systems which works together with some of the most popular molecular dynamics engines. Free energy calculations can be performed as a function of many order parameters with a particular  focus on biological problems, using state of the art methods such as metadynamics, umbrella sampling and Jarzynski-equation based steered MD. The software, written in C++, can be easily interfaced with both fortran and C/C++ codes.

PLUMED is free software! To get the download it here or from GitHub.

  • Plumed 2.3 and 2.2.4 released
    Two new PLUMED releases are available

    Release 2.2.4 is a maintenance release on the 2.2.x branch with a few bug fixes, see for a list of changes.

    Release 2.3.0 is a release that contains several new features, see: for a list of changes. This version can now be considered as fully stable.

    We will still fix bugs in branch 2.2.x for a while, but users are encouraged to upgrade to the new 2.3.x release. Just read carefully the change log before upgrading, paying attention to the changes that lead to incompatible behavior.

    You can find both releases in the download section of the plumed webpage. They are also tagged on github (v2.2.4 and v2.3.0).
