[AMBER] pressure tensor components

Dear Amber users,
I am trying to compute the surface tension of an interface

The formula for the surface tension,
gamma, that I want to use is the following:

gamma=(Lz/2)[<Pzz>-0.5(<Pxx>+<Pyy>)]
Pzz is the normal pressure tensor component (average value for the entire
simulation) and Pxx, Pyy are the lateral

pressure tensor components.

Is it possible to obtained these values directly from the simulation?



thanks for the help!!!!
