compute group/group

Hi Everyone,
In the Manual, there is a command of “compute group/group”. It Define a computation that calculates the total energy and force interaction between two groups of atoms: the compute group and the specified group2.
I want to know that is there any equation corresponding to this command or original literatures which described it?
Best regards!

no. this is too trivial an issue to warrant a publication. there is
nothing special about looping over all pairs and computing the
corresponding pairwise force and energy and summing them up.
