When evaluating with pairInteraction, NAMD evaluates the long-range gridded part for PME three times, once for the atoms in set A, once for the atoms in set B, and once for the atoms in sets A and B together, then it calculates differences to determine the long-range interaction forces and energy between the A and B sets of atoms. The short-range interactions between sets A and B are calculated in the obvious way.

It is my understanding that once using PME, the long-range electrostatic terms can't be trivially decomposed. Does pairInteraction only output the short-range terms, or also include the total long-range electrostatics (and thus both between and within group)? > > Thanks! > > Michael > -- > Michael V.
