These are the atom name and atom number for the atom that is associated
with GMAX (the largest element of the gradient vector).

This can help you find the worst bad contact in your structure (if GMAX
is very large), but there are other tools that do a better job of reporting
bad contacts, so I suspect these values are rarely used.
