If this is not the appropriate place for this question, please forward
to someone who can answer me.

I recently read the 1992 Protein Science paper on Alanyl dipeptide which
incorporated a implicit solvation term into the vacuum AMBER potential,
using Eisenberg's Atomic Solvation Parameters (from the same journal
I was wondering if the code to compute the surface area and
its gradient, has been incorporated into the AMBER program. It used the
method of Richmond, from a 1984 JMB publication, with slight
If the code is there, would it be possible to find out exactly where (ie
which source file(s) contain this code)? I have contacted Dr. Richmond
