[gmx-users] g_order for DPC alkyl chain in the micelle

very recently I faced the same problem with a system that gives micelles
of different geometries and, as far as I saw, g_order don't do that.
Then I decided to compute a kind of local order parameters defined as:

S_i=(3 cos(\theta)-1)/2 

where theta is the angle between the segments joining the carbon atoms
(i-1,i+1) and (i, i+2) in a linear C-chain. Perhaps you find this
reasonable for your analysis...
