Re: [AMBER] distance-dependent dielectric constant minimization

Dear Professor Case,

Thanks for your remind, I went back and read the manual again it just gives me a very brief introduce as" Dielectric multiplicative constant for the electrostatic interactions. Default is 1.0. Please note this is NOT related to dielectric constants for generalized Born simulations.". After read, I still do not know how to run the distance-dependent dielectric constant minimization. I ever read similar paper people did such minimization for some special purpose. But they never said how they did it.

Can you give me more detail? If it is on the tutorial and I missed again, I am really sorry for that!

Best wishes,

Rilei Yu

For sander/pmemd, look at the "dielc" and "idiel" variables in the Users'

For NAB, look at "dielc" and "diel".
