State updaters

State updaters implement methods used to advance states during simulations. State updaters may be e.g. minimization algorithms, Monte Carlo methods, molecular dynamics algorithms, etc. When a state updater is loaded at startup, SAMSON stores it in a list of available state updaters, used in particular when adding a simulator from the Simulation menu.

SAMSON provides a set of state updaters by default and you can add more from SAMSON Connect.

If you want to start developing you own state updaters, please, refer to the documentation about the generating SAMSON extensions and the SAMSON tutorials page for more information about writing new state updaters for SAMSON.
