....The same info can be obtained from entering "inverse squareroot" into
google or having a look into a standard numerics textbook (methods - 1st part) and
reading the intel compiler documentation or the amber(7 and up) sources
(methods - 2nd part). Speeding up CHARMM, AMBER, NAMD, GROMACS(!)... by
the shown factors would be pretty cool. Showing speedups for a package not designed
for speed (TINKER) seems close to cheating.

....I don't want to offend anyone by such a statement (sorry if I did) -
I just couldn't help writing this reply :-)
