Dear LAMMPS users,

I want to study the conformation property changes of polymer chains during deformations.

I want to use compute gyration command, but i have a question: what does this command compute??

- scalar value of Rg???
- squared value of Rg (Rg^2)???
- squared root value of Rg (sqrt(Rg))??

Thank you

Dear LAMMPS users,

I want to study the conformation property changes of polymer chains during

deformations.

I want to use compute gyration command, but i have a question: what does

this command compute??

scalar value of Rg???

squared value of Rg (Rg^2)???

squared root value of Rg (sqrt(Rg))??

it computes exactly what the documentation says:

http://lammps.sandia.gov/doc/compute_gyration.html

i.e, the scalar value of R_g (or the corresponding tensor).
