Hi James,

For the full story, I'd take a look at the GAFFlipid, Lipid11, and Lipid14 papers. Lipid14 is a lipid force field for tensionless bilayer simulations.

In case you're looking for those references here they are:

All the best,

‚ÄčLipid 11. The Amber 14 manual discusses the various lipid force fields in
chapter 3 section 8.

The lipid 11 and lipid 14 papers are also good references (citations
provided in the manual).
