Journal: Physical review E, statistical, nonlinear, and soft matter physics 
Abstract: In molecular dynamics simulations, temperature is evaluated, via the equipartition principle, by computing the mean kinetic energy of atoms. There is no similar recipe yet for evaluating temperature of a dynamic system of interacting spins. By solving semiclassical Langevin spin-dynamics equations, and applying the fluctuation-dissipation theorem, we derive an equation for the temperature of a spin ensemble, expressed in terms of dynamic spin variables. The fact that definitions for the kinetic and spin temperatures are fully consistent is illustrated using large-scale spin dynamics and spin-lattice dynamics simulations.
