[gmx-users] Steepest descent and max(|F|)

When you are minimizing a system with multiple atoms you are sometimes interested in knowing that the maximum force in your system is below a certain threshold. 
I hope this answers your question, since I am not really sure which part of the manual you are referring to.

Dear All

In the manual you use max(|Fn|),Why don't you use |Fn| ?

The notation max(|Fn|) means the largest of the absolute values of the force

The notation |Fn| means the absolute values of the force.

Good Luck
