NAME

       gmx-dyecoupl - Extract dye dynamics from trajectories

SYNOPSIS

          gmx dyecoupl [-f [<.xtc/.trr/...>]] [-n [<.ndx>]] [-ot [<.xvg>]]
                       [-oe [<.xvg>]] [-o [<.dat>]] [-rhist [<.xvg>]]
                       [-khist [<.xvg>]] [-b <time>] [-e <time>] [-tu <enum>]
                       [-[no]w] [-xvg <enum>] [-[no]pbcdist] [-[no]norm]
                       [-bins <int>] [-R0 <real>]

DESCRIPTION

       gmx  dyecoupl  extracts  dye  dynamics  from  trajectory  files.  Currently, R and kappa^2
       between dyes is extracted for (F)RET simulations with assumed dipolar coupling as  in  the
       Foerster  equation.   It  further  allows  the  calculation  of R(t) and kappa^2(t), R and
       kappa^2 histograms and averages, as well as the instantaneous FRET efficiency E(t)  for  a
       specified  Foerster radius R_0 (switch -R0).  The input dyes have to be whole (see res and
       mol pbc options in trjconv).  The dye transition dipole moment has to  be  defined  by  at
       least  a  single atom pair, however multiple atom pairs can be provided in the index file.
       The distance R is calculated on the basis of the  COMs  of  the  given  atom  pairs.   The
       -pbcdist option calculates distances to the nearest periodic image instead to the distance
       in the box. This works however only, for periodic boundaries in  all  3  dimensions.   The
       -norm option (area-) normalizes the histograms.
