Dear amber experts,

I need some clarification on calculating the diffusion constant D from MD simulation for bilayer system using "diffusion" command in ptraj.

The command I used is :

"diffusion :1-1 5.0 average diffusion-malto-thermo1.dat"

I get to see information saying that

"DIFFUSION

Only the average results will be dumped to diffusion-malto-thermo63.dat_?.xmgr

The time between frames in psec is 5.000.

To calculated diffusion constants, calculate the slope of the lines(s)

and multiply by 10.0/6.0; this will give units of 1x10**-5 cm**2/s

The atoms in the calculation follow: :63"

I get five files. I choose the file with *z extention to calculate the gradient.

For this I used gnuplot with command below:

" f(x) = b + m*x "

" fit f(x) "allxy-mal-cel-iso-bcm-diffusion_z.dat" using 1:2 via b,m "

I get values for "b" and "m" as below:

======================= ==========================

b = 1.12224 +/- 0.003892 (0.3468%)

m = 0.0337373 +/- 0.0001686 (0.4997%)

This means I get the gradient value as "0.0337373" and the y-intercept as "1.12224".

For now I want to calculate the diffusion.

So I times 0.0337373 with (10/4) since mine is bilayer (2 dimensional system).

I get "0.08434325".

Finally should I write my answer as

0.08434325 x 10^(-5) cm^2/s

Is this is the correct way of interpret the D value?

I appreciate anyone's reply to this post.
