Re: AMBER: Meaning of induced dipole moments for atom pairs?

Thanks for replying.

Just one more dummy question.
I suppose that a total induced dipole moment for a
pair of atoms printed in a sander output would be a
vectorial (but not a regular) sum of the atomic
induced dipole moments. Is this correct?

best regards,
