RISM/3D-RISM

  • Level of openness 1 ★☆☆
  • Document quality 1 ★☆☆

This is a structure analysis program for solutes and solvents, based on the statistical mechanics theory of liquids. The program determines the solvent density distribution surrounding the solute, and calculates various physical values such as the solvation free energy, compressibility, and partial molar volume. The program implements a parallelized fast Fourier transform routine for large-scale parallel computing, and can analyze molecular functions such as the ligand binding affinity of proteins, that would be difficult using other methods.
