Good morning all,
I have a non-bonded potential which does not require the construction of a neighbor list and therefore I use pair_style none. However, I do still have a needed for sending some particles since there are bonds. However, it is slightly overkill to generate neighbor lists which includes many more particles than the ones it is directly bonded to and doing comm_modify cutoff 5.0 or so has the same drawback of generating a neighbor list, that is, sending more particles than those are actually necessary.
Is there a way to send only the particles which cross the processor’s boundary and those particles that are explicitly mentioned interactions with that particle (those particles that are directly bonded, in an angle/dihedral calculation)? If not, what would need to be modified in the comm structure to add such a functionality?
Thank you in advance.
