The general form of the force field implemented in the program is:
is the sum of Lennard-Jones interactions taken over non-bonded atom pairs. A pair of atoms is considered as non-bonded if they are on different molecules or if they are on the same molecule but separated by more than two covalent bonds. A case when a pair of atoms is separated by exactly 3 bonds (the so-called 1-4 neighbors) is treated separately, see below. is the distance between atoms and .
is the sum of electrostatic interactions
The remaining terms in (1) are inramolecular interactions due to covalent bonds, covalent angles and torsion angles. They are described below.
For each molecule type used in the simulation a file describing molecular
structure and parameters of the force field is needed. The
file must have extension *.mmol . Some examples of .mmol files are given
.mmol files consist of several parts which are described below. Lines, beginning with "#" are commentaries and they are ignored by the program. Other lines contain parameters in free format.
