C++ Other
Latest commit 3cfaaa6 Jan 23, 2017 Jacob Wagner Release of Version 1.6.0
* Fix compilation issue (include statement) for mscg library
* Redo angle and dihedral calculations
* New options for angle and dihedral entry in
* Enable “smart” interaction reading
** rmin* files now recognize type name or number
** no longer needs all interactions to be specified (or them
to specified in order)
* Move warning and error messages to stderr
* Factor common warning and error messages into functions
* Avoid character buffer limited line reading
* Make control input an object
* Fix memory issue with values outside of interaction ranges
* Avoid implicit typecasting of literal numbers in geometry


The Multiscale Coarse-Graining (MS-CG) method is a variational force-matching technique developed by the Voth group. This project serves as the workhorse implementation of the method used as a standard force-matching code.

The development of MS-CG is supported by academic research grants. If you use this package, please cite at least one of these papers:
