NAME

HackaMol::AtomGroup - HackaMol AtomGroup class

VERSION

version 0.00_12

SYNOPSIS

   use HackaMol::AtomGroup;
   use Math::Vector::Real;
   use Math::Vector::Real::Random;

   my $radius = 16;
   my $natoms = int(0.0334*($radius**3)*4*pi/3);

   my @atoms = map {Atom->new(Z => 8, charges=> [0], coords => [$_]) }
               map {$_*$radius}
               map {Math::Vector::Real->random_in_sphere(3)} 1 .. $natoms;

   my $group = AtomGroup->new(gname => 'biggroup', atoms=> [@atoms]);

   print $group->count_atoms . "\n";

   print $group->count_unique_atoms . "\n";

   print $group->Rg . "\n";

   my $numerical_error = $radius*sqrt($radius*3/5) - $group->Rg;

DESCRIPTION

The HackaMol AtomGroup class provides methods and attributes for groups of atoms. Atom groupings can be defined to mimic conventional forcefields or manipulated to generate novel analytical tools. For example, with a trajectory loaded, a dynamic cluster of atoms can be placed in a group and monitored in time. Or, perhaps, track regional charges of a quantum mechanical molecule with changes in configuration or external field. The AtomGroup class consumes the AtomGroupRole and provides the parent class for the Molecule class.

METHODS

Rg

no arguments. returns the scalar radius of gyration for the group of atoms

ATTRIBUTES

name

isa Str that is lazy and rw. useful for labeling, bookkeeping...
