This variable controls the effect the kick has on the polarization of the solvent. If .true. ONLY the FAST degrees-of-freedom of the solvent follow the kick. The potential due to polarization charges behaves as another kick, i.e., it is a delta-perturbation. If .false. ALL degrees-of-freedom of the solvent follow the kick. The potential due to polarization charges evolves following an equation of motion. When Debye dielectric model is used, just a part of the potential behaves as another kick.
