CMAPTorsionForce
¶

class CMAPTorsionForce : public OpenMM::Force¶
This class implements an interaction between pairs of dihedral angles. The interaction energy is defined by an “energy correction map” (CMAP), which is simply a set of tabulated energy values on a regular grid of (phi, psi) angles. Natural cubic spline interpolation is used to compute forces and energies at arbitrary values of the two angles.
To use this class, first create one or more energy correction maps by calling addMap(). For each one, you provide an array of energies at uniformly spaced values of the two angles. Next, add interactions by calling addTorsion(). For each one, you specify the sequence of particles used to calculate each of the two dihedral angles, and the index of the map used to calculate their interaction energy.
Public Functions

CMAPTorsionForce()¶
Create a CMAPTorsionForce.

inline int getNumMaps() const¶
Get the number of maps that have been defined.

inline int getNumTorsions() const¶
Get the number of CMAP torsion terms in the potential function

int addMap(int size, const std::vector<double> &energy)¶
Create a new map that can be used for torsion pairs.
 Parameters
size – the size of the map along each dimension

Get the energy values of a map.
 Parameters
index – the index of the map for which to get energy values
size – [out] the size of the map along each dimension
energy – [out] the energy values for the map. This must be of length size*size. The element energy[i+size*j] contains the energy when the first torsion angle equals i*2*PI/size and the second torsion angle equals j*2*PI/size.

void setMapParameters(int index, int size, const std::vector<double> &energy)¶
Set the energy values of a map.

 Parameters

a1 – the index of the first particle forming the first torsion
a2 – the index of the second particle forming the first torsion
a3 – the index of the third particle forming the first torsion
a4 – the index of the fourth particle forming the first torsion
b1 – the index of the first particle forming the second torsion
b2 – the index of the second particle forming the second torsion
b3 – the index of the third particle forming the second torsion
b4 – the index of the fourth particle forming the second torsion

void updateParametersInContext(Context &context)¶
Update the map and torsion parameters in a Context to match those stored in this Force object. This method provides an efficient method to update certain parameters in an existing Context without needing to reinitialize it. Simply call setMapParameters() and setTorsionParameters() to modify this object’s parameters, then call updateParametersInContext() to copy them over to the Context.
The only information that can be updated with this method is the energy values for a map, and the map index for a torsion. The size of a map and the set of particles involved in a torsion cannot be changed. Also, new bonds and torsions cannot be added.

void setUsesPeriodicBoundaryConditions(bool periodic)¶
Set whether this force should apply periodic boundary conditions when calculating displacements. Usually this is not appropriate for bonded forces, but there are situations when it can be useful.

virtual bool usesPeriodicBoundaryConditions() const¶
Returns whether or not this force makes use of periodic boundary conditions.
 Returns
true if force uses PBC and false otherwise
