If you ensure an enough large NT_HILLS this criterion is totally
need to implement anything..).. how large? this depends on the nature
of your collective variable... (30 fs.. 40 fs.. 100 fs.. ??)...
NT_HILLS should be large enough to average all the fast degrees of
of your system between one hill and the other.. so.. you can easily
even the condition you were mentioning is not SAFE. the time between
one hill and the other COULD be by far larger than the 3/2 criteria
mentioning since in that simulation time you may have not averaged
Since it looks like you know very well metadynamics than you know
the choice of the parameter is fundamental in order to sample
free energy surface.
This means that there's no safe for procedure but a lot of experience
into your calculations and this unfortunately cannot be easily
a black box..
