g_energy extracts energy components or distance restraint data from an
energy file. The user is prompted to interactively select the energy
terms she wants.
Average and RMSD are calculated with full precision from the simulation
(see printed manual). Drift is calculated by performing a LSQ fit of
the data to a straight line. Total drift is drift multiplied by total
time. The term fluctuation gives the RMSD around the LSQ fit.
When the -viol option is set, the time averaged violations are plotted
and the running time-averaged and instantaneous sum of violations are
recalculated. Additionally running time-averaged and instantaneous
distances between selected pairs can be plotted with the -pairs
Options -ora, -ort, -oda, -odr and -odt are used for analyzing
orientation restraint data. The first two options plot the
orientation, the last three the deviations of the orientations from the
experimental values. The options that end on an ’a’ plot the average
over time as a function of restraint. The options that end on a ’t’
prompt the user for restraint label numbers and plot the data as a
function of time. Option -odr plots the RMS deviation as a function of
restraint. When the run used time or ensemble averaged orientation
restraints, option -orinst can be used to analyse the instantaneous,
not ensemble-averaged orientations and deviations instead of the time
and ensemble averages.
Option -oten plots the eigenvalues of the molecular order tensor for
each orientation restraint experiment. With option -ovec also the
eigenvectors are plotted.
With -fee an estimate is calculated for the free-energy difference
with an ideal gas state:
Delta A = A(N,V,T) - A_idgas(N,V,T) = kT ln e(Upot/kT)
Delta G = G(N,p,T) - G_idgas(N,p,T) = kT ln e(Upot/kT)
where k is Boltzmann’s constant, T is set by -fetemp andthe average is
over the ensemble (or time in a trajectory). Note that this is in
principle only correct when averaging over the whole (Boltzmann)
ensemble and using the potential energy. This also allows for an
entropy estimate using:
Delta S(N,V,T) = S(N,V,T) - S_idgas(N,V,T) = (Upot - Delta A)/T
Delta S(N,p,T) = S(N,p,T) - S_idgas(N,p,T) = (Upot + pV - Delta G)/T
When a second energy file is specified ( -f2), a free energy difference
is calculated dF = -kT ln e -(EB-EA)/kT A , where EA and EB are the
energies from the first and second energy files, and the average is
over the ensemble A. NOTE that the energies must both be calculated
from the same trajectory.
