gmx-principal — Calculate principal axes of inertia for a group of atoms

Synopsis

gmx principal [-f [<.xtc/.trr/...>]] [-s [<.tpr/.gro/...>]]
             [-n [<.ndx>]] [-a1 [<.xvg>]] [-a2 [<.xvg>]]
             [-a3 [<.xvg>]] [-om [<.xvg>]] [-b <time>] [-e <time>]
             [-dt <time>] [-tu <enum>] [-[no]w] [-xvg <enum>]
             [-[no]foo]

Description

gmx principal calculates the three principal axes of inertia for a group of atoms. NOTE: Old versions of GROMACS wrote the output data in a strange transposed way. As of GROMACS 5.0, the output file paxis1.dat contains the x/y/z components of the first (major) principal axis for each frame, and similarly for the middle and minor axes in paxis2.dat and paxis3.dat.

Options

Options to specify input files:

-f [<.xtc/.trr/...>] (traj.xtc)

-s [<.tpr/.gro/...>] (topol.tpr)

Structure+mass(db): tpr gro g96 pdb brk ent

-n [<.ndx>] (index.ndx) (Optional)

Index file

Options to specify output files:
