g_vanhove computes the Van Hove correlation function. The Van Hove G(r,t) is the probability that a particle that is at r_0 at time zero can be found at position r_0+r at time t. g_vanhove determines G not for a vector r, but for the length of r. Thus it gives the probability that a particle moves a distance of r in time t. Jumps across the periodic boundaries are removed. Corrections are made for scaling due to isotropic or anisotropic pressure coupling. With option -om the whole matrix can be written as a function of t and r or as a function of sqrt(t) and r (option -sqrt). With option -or the Van Hove function is plotted for one or more values of t. Option -nr sets the number of times, option -fr the number spacing between the times. The binwidth is set with option -rbin. The number of bins is determined automatically. With option -ot the integral up to a certain distance (option -rt) is plotted as a function of time. For all frames that are read the coordinates of the selected particles are stored in memory. Therefore the program may use a lot of memory. For options -om and -ot the program may be slow. This is because the calculation scales as the number of frames times -fm or -ft. Note that with the -dt option the memory usage and calculation time can be reduced.
