 #25846 - 11/22/10 02:32 PM Re: Cell Basis Vectors [Re: rmv] apredeus Forum Member Registered: 01/20/10 Posts: 147 I looked at it and still is somewhat confused. I'm interested in cell basis vectors for truncated octahedron. it seems like they are defined as follows (if I understood the meaning of XTLABC array correctly)A = (a, -a/5, -a/5)B = (-a/5, a, -a/5)C = (-a/5, -a/5, a)these vectors do have correct angles between them, but at the same time they are not of appropriate length. I mean, aren't cell basis vectors supposed to be of length a?If anyone can clarify this matter I'd greatly appreciate it. Top
 #25858 - 11/24/10 11:48 PM Re: Cell Basis Vectors apredeus Forum Member Registered: 01/20/10 Posts: 147 ok, apparently the vectors are normalized, I just had hard time finding it in the code. so the set would be A = (5b, -b, -b)B = (-b, 5b, -b)C = (-b, -b, 5b)where b = 5a/3*sqrt(3)These are the vectors that can be used in NAMD/Gromacs in order to obtain the crystal of the same orientation as in CHARMM.

I've checked an octahedral example and the formula b = a/(3*sqrt(3)) seems correct.Best regards, Edited by Antoniel Gomes (05/16/19 03:46 PM) Top
