deform erate, deform wiggle

Hi all,

the difference between these two (erate, wiggle) in fix_deform is that the latter exerts oscillatory shear. but in examples folder, “Aspherical shear-2d line box” has "fix deform erate" where the output is an oscillatory shear.
is this some thing that “line atom style” does?



What do you mean by “the output is an oscillatory shear” ??

The movie here:

is for that input script and is not oscillatory. It is
continuous shear, where the box is being occasionally flipped

back to an image state with a negative xy factor. That
isn’t oscillatory.


thanks, I saw the movie. my apology.
