Dear members of gromacs
I have several questions.
I have been working on the diffusion problem (diffusing particles diffuse
into the zeolite).
Although I have successfully obtained the output file, there are problems
for analyzing it.
My questions are
1) I have to calculate diffusion coefficient using g_msd. To my knowledge,
the directional diffusion coefficient can be acquired by -type -z (for
But, it seems that the plot of MSD using g_msd is the result of 3
dimensionally averaged MSD but not z direction.
How can I produce the MSD graph which has only uni-directional information.
(ignore x, y displacement. only account for z-directional displacement)
2) There are 20-30 particles as diffusing particles. g_msd, of course,
compute the averaged MSD for whole particles. Is it true??
Then, how can I obtain the MSD graph for only single particle ??
3) in mdp file, there is option for periodic_molecules. I couldn't
understant how it is working.
In my system ( assumed to be infinite zeolite), do I have to set the
periodic_molecules = yes ???
Thank you for reading this lengthy story.
