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 molecule: · 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 3. 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
