Question regarding Class 2 Dihedral Potential Documentation

On the dihedral_style class2 page, a term for Eaa is not defined, while it is clearly present in all literature references, e.g.,


  2. COMPASS: An ab Initio Force-Field Optimized for Condensed-Phase Applications doi: 10.1021/jp980939v

Is this a documentation mistake, or is there a reason for this?




Hi Fred

It is included in the improper torsion term in LAMMPS.
