Re: Radial Distribution Function

Probably by now you've found out that a similar question was posted once a while
ago, and there is a RDF.tcl available (written by Zhanwu Liu). I am also
interested in this issue recently. However, it seems to me the script cannot be
used for a single atom of interest. For example, it probably won't work if you
want to get a RDF of a specific atom with all the hydrogen atoms in water. I
wrote a matlab code for this.

Hope this helps.
