       gmx sorient analyzes solvent orientation around solutes.  It calculates two angles between
       the vector from one or more  reference  positions  to  the  first  atom  of  each  solvent

          · theta_1: the angle with the vector from the first atom of the solvent molecule to the
            midpoint between atoms 2 and 3.

          · theta_2: the angle with the normal of the solvent plane, defined by  the  same  three
            atoms, or, when the option -v23 is set, the angle with the vector between atoms 2 and

       The reference can be a set of atoms or the center of mass of a set of atoms. The group  of
       solvent  atoms  should  consist  of  3 atoms per solvent molecule.  Only solvent molecules
       between -rmin and -rmax are considered for -o and -no each frame.

       -o: distribution of cos(theta_1) for rmin<=r<=rmax.

       -no: distribution of cos(theta_2) for rmin<=r<=rmax.

       -ro: <cos(theta_1)> and <3cos(^2theta_2)-1> as a function of the distance.

       -co:  the  sum  over  all  solvent  molecules  within  distance  r  of  cos(theta_1)   and
       3cos(^2(theta_2)-1) as a function of r.

       -rc: the distribution of the solvent molecules as a function of r
