compute_dihedrals(traj, indices, periodic=True, opt=True)¶
Compute the dihedral angles between the supplied quartets of atoms in each frame in a trajectory.
An mtraj trajectory.
- indicesnp.ndarray, shape=(n_dihedrals, 4), dtype=int
Each row gives the indices of four atoms which together make a dihedral angle. The angle is between the planes spanned by the first three atoms and the last three atoms, a torsion around the bond between the middle two atoms.
- periodicbool, default=True
If periodic is True and the trajectory contains unitcell information, we will treat dihedrals that cross periodic images using the minimum image convention.
- optbool, default=True
Use an optimized native library to calculate angles.
- dihedralsnp.ndarray, shape=(n_frames, n_dihedrals), dtype=float
The output array gives, in each frame from the trajectory, each of the n_dihedrals torsion angles. The angles are measured in radians.
