# 8.3. LAMMPS commands

## 8.3.1. Enable DeePMD-kit plugin (plugin mode)

If you are using the plugin mode, enable DeePMD-kit package in LAMMPS with `plugin`

command:

```
plugin load libdeepmd_lmp.so
```

After LAMMPS version `patch_24Mar2022`

, another way to load plugins is to set the environmental variable `LAMMPS_PLUGIN_PATH`

:

```
LAMMPS_PLUGIN_PATH=$deepmd_root/lib/deepmd_lmp
```

where `$deepmd_root`

is the directory to install C++ interface.

The built-in mode doesn’t need this step.

## 8.3.2. pair_style `deepmd`

The DeePMD-kit package provides the pair_style `deepmd`

```
pair_style deepmd models ... keyword value ...
```

deepmd = style of this pair_style

models = frozen model(s) to compute the interaction. If multiple models are provided, then only the first model serves to provide energy and force prediction for each timestep of molecular dynamics, and the model deviation will be computed among all models every

`out_freq`

timesteps.keyword =

*out_file*or*out_freq*or*fparam*or*atomic*or*relative*

out_filevalue = filename filename = The file name for the model deviation output. Default is model_devi.outout_freqvalue = freq freq = Frequency for the model deviation output. Default is 100.fparamvalue = parameters parameters = one or more frame parameters required for model evaluation.atomic= no value is required. If this keyword is set, the model deviation of each atom will be output.relativevalue = level level = The level parameter for computing the relative model deviation

### 8.3.2.1. Examples

```
pair_style deepmd graph.pb
pair_style deepmd graph.pb fparam 1.2
pair_style deepmd graph_0.pb graph_1.pb graph_2.pb out_file md.out out_freq 10 atomic relative 1.0
```

### 8.3.2.2. Description

Evaluate the interaction of the system by using Deep Potential or Deep Potential Smooth Edition. It is noticed that deep potential is not a “pairwise” interaction, but a multi-body interaction.

This pair style takes the deep potential defined in a model file that usually has the .pb extension. The model can be trained and frozen by package DeePMD-kit.

The model deviation evalulate the consistency of the force predictions from multiple models. By default, only the maximal, minimal and averge model deviations are output. If the key `atomic`

is set, then the model deviation of force prediction of each atom will be output.

By default, the model deviation is output in absolute value. If the keyword `relative`

is set, then the relative model deviation will be output. The relative model deviation of the force on atom `i`

is defined by

```
|Df_i|
Ef_i = -------------
|f_i| + level
```

where `Df_i`

is the absolute model deviation of the force on atom `i`

, `|f_i|`

is the norm of the the force and `level`

is provided as the parameter of the keyword `relative`

.

### 8.3.2.3. Restrictions

The

`deepmd`

pair style is provided in the USER-DEEPMD package, which is compiled from the DeePMD-kit, visit the DeePMD-kit website for more information.

## 8.3.3. Compute tensorial properties

The DeePMD-kit package provide the compute `deeptensor/atom`

for computing atomic tensorial properties.

```
compute ID group-ID deeptensor/atom model_file
```

ID: user-assigned name of the computation

group-ID: ID of the group of atoms to compute

deeptensor/atom: the style of this compute

model_file: the name of the binary model file.

### 8.3.3.1. Examples

```
compute dipole all deeptensor/atom dipole.pb
```

The result of the compute can be dump to trajctory file by

```
dump 1 all custom 100 water.dump id type c_dipole[1] c_dipole[2] c_dipole[3]
```

### 8.3.3.2. Restrictions

The

`deeptensor/atom`

compute is provided in the USER-DEEPMD package, which is compiled from the DeePMD-kit, visit the DeePMD-kit website for more information.

## 8.3.4. Long-range interaction

The reciprocal space part of the long-range interaction can be calculated by LAMMPS command `kspace_style`

. To use it with DeePMD-kit, one writes

```
pair_style deepmd graph.pb
pair_coeff
kspace_style pppm 1.0e-5
kspace_modify gewald 0.45
```

Please notice that the DeePMD does nothing to the direct space part of the electrostatic interaction, because this part is assumed to be fitted in the DeePMD model (the direct space cut-off is thus the cut-off of the DeePMD model). The splitting parameter `gewald`

is modified by the `kspace_modify`

command.

## 8.3.5. Use of the centroid/stress/atom to get the full 3x3 “atomic-virial”

The DeePMD-kit allows also the computation of per-atom stress tensor defined as:

Where is the atomic position of nth atom, velocity of atom and the derivative of the atomic energy.

In LAMMPS one can get the per-atom stress using the command `centroid/stress/atom`

:

```
compute ID group-ID centroid/stress/atom NULL virial
```

see LAMMPS doc page for more detailes on the meaning of the keywords.

### 8.3.5.1. Examples

In order of computing the 9-component per-atom stress

```
compute stress all centroid/stress/atom NULL virial
```

Thus `c_stress`

is an array with 9 component in the order `xx,yy,zz,xy,xz,yz,yx,zx,zy`

.

## 8.3.6. Computation of heat flux

Using per-atom stress tensor one can, for example, compute the heat flux defined as:

to compute the heat flux with LAMMPS:

```
compute ke_ID all ke/atom
compute pe_ID all pe/atom
compute stress_ID group-ID centroid/stress/atom NULL virial
compute flux_ID all heat/flux ke_ID pe_ID stress_ID
```

### 8.3.6.1. Examples

```
compute ke all ke/atom
compute pe all pe/atom
compute stress all centroid/stress/atom NULL virial
compute flux all heat/flux ke pe stress
```

`c_flux`

is a global vector of length 6. The first three components are the `x`

, `y`

and `z`

components of the full heat flux vector. The others are the components of the so-called convective portion, see LAMMPS doc page for more detailes.
