QUESTION about transfer a force filed from GULP to LAMMPS

Hi, all

thanks for the reply of steve. i did a simple test with a same molecular configuration, with only electrostatic potential. see the following output from GULP and lammps. the energy in this case differs by 0.0005 ev, (actually in the previous email, i report the energy difference between GULP and Lammps calculated on another molecular configuration is 0.05 ev, this is a typo, i am sorry for that, it should be 0.0005 ev).

Hi, all


BY THE WAY, any one knows that if i use coul/dsf as the pair_style, what is the corresponding kspace solver i should use?

coul/dsf (like coul/wolf) is a real space only potential. thus you
should use "kspace none" (which is the default).
please recall the comment below about coul/wolf (n.b. coul/dsf is an
improved variant of coul/wolf, so what is said there applies to
coul/dsf as well):

With a long enough cutoff and small enough alpha parameter, the energy
and forces calcluated by the Wolf summation method approach those of
the Ewald sum. So it is a means of getting effective long-range
interactions with a short-range potential.
