[gmx-users] Fwd: Frequency dependent dielectric of water

Hello Professor David,
I did not use Gromacs to calculate dipole autocorrelation function and I
did not set PME. I calculated molecular dipole from CP2K and I prepared
dipcorr.xvg file and used Gromacs's g_dielectric function for frequency
In this case, what will be the epsRF?
I am trying to use g_dielectric function just to calculate frequecy
dependent dielectric using dipole ACF.
