Pair_write for AIREBO potential

Dear LAMMPS users,

When I try to use pair_write with AIREBO I get a message saying that the pair style does not support pair_write. Is this always true for AIREBO, or could it depend on other input parameters? If pair_write can never be used for AIREBO does anyone have any suggestions for trying to visualize the potential?

Thank you!

Dear LAMMPS users,

When I try to use pair_write with AIREBO I get a message saying that the
pair style does not support pair_write. Is this always true for AIREBO, or
could it depend on other input parameters? If pair_write can never be used

it *has* to be true for AIREBO since it is a many-body potential,
so the potential does not only depend on the distance between
pairs of atoms (like lennard jones), but also on the location of
additional atoms.

for AIREBO does anyone have any suggestions for trying to visualize the
potential?

you cannot visualize it as a pair distance dependent graph.
have a closer look at the mathematical expression of the potential.
