Abstract: A numerical integration scheme based upon the Shardlow-splitting algorithm (SSA) is presented for the constant-temperature dissipative particle dynamics method. The SSA is formulated for both a velocity-Verlet scheme and an implicit scheme, where the velocity-Verlet scheme consistently performed better. The original SSA formulated for systems of equal-mass particles has been extended to systems of unequal-mass particles. For completeness, the Fokker-Planck equation and derivation of the fluctuation-dissipation theorem are included.
