[gmx-users] the details about g_density

Thanks very much for your reply.Fortunately,I have used g_density in NVT systems. Does the expression " it is built from the coordinate origin outward" mean that the mass density profile is calculated based on the average of the coordination and weight of each atom of the molecule?
With best wishes,

No, it is built from the coordinate origin outward. Note that there are
problems with g_density when using NPT and/or complex systems:
The issue also has some useful information about how g_density works, which of
course can also be obtained from the code itself.
