GMX-NMEIG(1) GROMACS GMX-NMEIG(1)NAMEgmx-nmeig - Diagonalize the Hessian for normal mode analysisSYNOPSISgmx nmeig [-f[_.mtx_]] [-s[_.tpr_]] [-of[_.xvg_]] [-ol[_.xvg_]] [-os[_.xvg_]] [-qc[_.xvg_]] [-v[_.trr/.cpt/..._]] [-xvg_enum_] [-[no]m] [-first_int_] [-last_int_] [-maxspec_int_] [-T_real_] [-P_real_] [-sigma_int_] [-scale_real_] [-linear_toler_real_] [-[no]constr] [-width_real_]DESCRIPTIONgmxnmeigcalculates the eigenvectors/values of a (Hessian) matrix, which can be calculated with gmx mdrun. The eigenvectors are written to a trajectory file (-v). The structure is written first with t=0. The eigenvectors are written as frames with the eigenvector number and eigenvalue written as step number and timestamp, respectively. The eigenvectors can be analyzed with gmx anaeig. An ensemble of struc- tures can be generated from the eigenvectors with gmx nmens. When mass weighting is used, the generated eigenvectors will be scaled back to plain Cartesian coordinates before generating the output. In this case, they will no longer be exactly orthogonal in the standard Cartesian norm, but in the mass-weighted norm they would be. This program can be optionally used to compute quantum corrections to heat capacity and enthalpy by providing an extra file argument-qcorr. See the GROMACS manual, Chapter 1, for details. The result includes subtracting a harmonic degree of freedom at the given temperature. The total correction is printed on the terminal screen. The recommended way of getting the corrections out is:gmxnmeig-stopol.tpr-fnm.mtx-first7-last10000-T300-qc[-con-str]The-constroption should be used when bond constraints were used dur- ing the simulationforallthecovalentbonds. If this is not the case, you need to analyze thequant_corr.xvgfile yourself. To make things more flexible, the program can also take virtual sites into account when computing quantum corrections. When selecting-constrand-qc, the-beginand-endoptions will be set automatically as well. Based on a harmonic analysis of the normal mode frequencies, thermo- chemical properties S0 (Standard Entropy), Cv (Heat capacity at con- stant volume), Zero-point energy and the internal energy are computed, much in the same manner as popular quantum chemistry programs.OPTIONSOptions to specify input files:-f[<.mtx>](hessian.mtx)Hessian matrix-s[<.tpr>](topol.tpr)Portable xdr run input file Options to specify output files:-of[<.xvg>](eigenfreq.xvg)xvgr/xmgr file-ol[<.xvg>](eigenval.xvg)xvgr/xmgr file-os[<.xvg>](spectrum.xvg)(Optional)xvgr/xmgr file-qc[<.xvg>](quant_corr.xvg)(Optional)xvgr/xmgr file-v[<.trr/.cpt/^a|>](eigenvec.trr)Full precision trajectory: trr cpt tng Other options:-xvg<enum>(xmgrace)xvg plot formatting: xmgrace, xmgr, none-[no]m(yes)Divide elements of Hessian by product of sqrt(mass) of involved atoms prior to diagonalization.
