mdtraj.compute_J3_HN_C

mdtraj.compute_J3_HN_C(traj, model='Bax2007')

Calculate the scalar coupling between HN and C_prime.

This function does not take into account periodic boundary conditions (it will give spurious results if the three atoms which make up any angle jump across a PBC (are not “wholed”))

Parameters
trajmdtraj.Trajectory

Trajectory to compute J3_HN_C for

modelstring, optional, default=”Bax2007”

Which scalar coupling model to use. Must be one of Bax2007

Returns
indicesnp.ndarray, shape=(n_phi, 4), dtype=int

Atom indices (zero-based) of the phi dihedrals

Jnp.ndarray, shape=(n_frames, n_phi)

Scalar couplings (J3_HN_C, in [Hz]) of this trajectory. J[k] corresponds to the phi dihedral associated with atoms indices[k]
