g_nmeig: diagonalizes the Hessian

NAME

g_nmeig - diagonalizes the Hessian

VERSION 4.0.1

SYNOPSIS

g_nmeig -f hessian.mtx -s topol.tpr -of eigenfreq.xvg -ol eigenval.xvg -v eigenvec.trr -[no]h -nice int -[no]xvgr -[no]m -first int -last int

DESCRIPTION

g_nmeig calculates the eigenvectors/values of a (Hessian) matrix, which can be calculated with mdrun. The eigenvectors are written to a trajectory file ( -v). The structure is written first with t=0. The eigenvectors are written as frames with the eigenvector number as timestamp. The eigenvectors can be analyzed with g_anaeig. An ensemble of structures can be generated from the eigenvectors with g_nmens. When mass weighting is used, the generated eigenvectors will be scaled back to plain cartesian coordinates before generating the output - in this case they will no longer be exactly orthogonal in the standard cartesian norm (But in the mass weighted norm they would be).
