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:
