[gmx-users] where is Coul-LR?

So would it be reasonable to set rcoulomb = 2 or even 3 nm when rerunning a
trajectory? I am looking at a ligand-antibody system, and I guess the
long-range electrostatic interactions will not be small.

A trick proposed by Nicolas in the mailing list during 2007 is to set
charges to 0.00 for everything except the atoms we are interested in. This
would make Coul-LR: = Coul.-recip., which is calculated by PME (more
accurate than just setting rcoulomb to 3nm?) and we can read from .edr
file. So I wonder if this method is theoretically sound?
