int t_pbc::dim

Used for selecting which dimensions to use in PBC.

In case of 1-D PBC this indicates which dimension is used, in case of 2-D PBC this indicates the opposite

int t_pbc::ntric_vec

Number of triclinic shift vectors.

Number of triclinic shift vectors depends on the skewedness of the box, that is mostly on the angles. For triclinic boxes we first take the closest image along each Cartesian dimension independently. When the resulting distance^2 is larger than max_cutoff2, up to ntric_vec triclinic shift vectors need to be tried. Because of the restrictions imposed on the unit-cell by GROMACS, ntric_vec <= MAX_NTRICVEC = 12.

int t_pbc::pbcTypeDX

Determines how to compute distance vectors.

Indicator of how to compute distance vectors, depending on PBC type (depends on pbcType and dimensions with(out) DD) and the box angles.
