Description of components

The names of the components in this action can be customized by the user in the actions input file. However, in addition to the components that can be customized the following quantities will always be output

Quantity Description
.#!value the vector that is obtained by taking the product between the matrix and the vector that were input
.#!custom the names of the output components for this action depend on the actions input file see the example inputs below for details
Options
SERIAL

( default=off ) do the calculation in serial. Do not parallelize

ARG the input for this action is the scalar output from one or more other actions. The particular scalars that you will use are referenced using the label of the action. If the label appears on its own then it is assumed that the Action calculates a single scalar value. The value of this scalar is thus used as the input to this new action. If * or *.* appears the scalars calculated by all the proceeding actions in the input file are taken. Some actions have multi-component outputs and each component of the output has a specific label. For example a DISTANCE action labelled dist may have three components x, y and z. To take just the x component you should use dist.x, if you wish to take all three components then use dist.*.More information on the referencing of Actions can be found in the section of the manual on the PLUMED Getting Started. Scalar values can also be referenced using POSIX regular expressions as detailed in the section on Regular Expressions. To use this feature you you must compile PLUMED with the appropriate flag.. You can use multiple instances of this keyword i.e. ARG1, ARG2, ARG3...
