Please keep GROMACS correspondence on the mailing list.

First do some MDS background reading - such as the first few chapters of
the GROMACS manual. MDS are intrinsically atomistic, so you will need to
either cast your wavelet decomposition in such a fashion to use GROMACS,
or write custom software.
