How the Type-based Parameter Retrieval Works

This example shows how X-PLOR finds parameters for the covalent bonds, bond angles, improper angles, and nonbonded energy terms. It demonstrates that the introduction of atom types greatly reduces the number of parameters that have to be specified. The parameter retrieval is carried out when the energy statement is issued.
