g_rotacf_d: calculates the rotational correlation function for molecules

NAME

g_rotacf - calculates the rotational correlation function for molecules

VERSION 4.0.1

SYNOPSIS

g_rotacf -f traj.xtc -s topol.tpr -n index.ndx -o rotacf.xvg -[no]h -nice int -b time -e time -dt time -[no]w -[no]xvgr -[no]d -[no]aver -acflen int -[no]normalize -P enum -fitfn enum -ncskip int -beginfit real -endfit real

DESCRIPTION

g_rotacf calculates the rotational correlation function for molecules. Three atoms (i,j,k) must be given in the index file, defining two vectors ij and jk. The rotational acf is calculated as the autocorrelation function of the vector n = ij x jk, i.e. the cross product of the two vectors. Since three atoms span a plane, the order of the three atoms does not matter. Optionally, controlled by the -d switch, you can calculate the rotational correlation function for linear molecules by specifying two atoms (i,j) in the index file.

EXAMPLES

g_rotacf -P 1 -nparm 2 -fft -n index -o rotacf-x-P1 -fa expfit-x-P1 -beginfit 2.5 -endfit 20.0

This will calculate the rotational correlation function using a first order Legendre polynomial of the angle of a vector defined by the index file. The correlation function will be fitted from 2.5 ps till 20.0 ps to a two parameter exponential
