Description

Calculate the RMSD between coordinate sets.

Usage

1
rmsd(a, b=NULL, a.inds=NULL, b.inds=NULL, fit=FALSE, ncore=1, nseg.scale=1)

Arguments

a

a numeric vector containing the reference coordinate set for comparison with the coordinates in b. Alternatively, if b=NULL then a can be a matrix or list object containing multiple coordinates for pairwise comparison.

b

a numeric vector, matrix or list object with an xyz component, containing one or more coordinate sets to be compared with a.

a.inds

a vector of indices that selects the elements of a upon which the calculation should be based.

b.inds

a vector of indices that selects the elements of b upon which the calculation should be based.

fit

logical, if TRUE coordinate superposition is performed prior to RMSD calculation.

ncore

number of CPU cores used to do the calculation. ncore>1 requires package ‘parallel’ installed.

nseg.scale

split input data into specified number of segments prior to running multiple core calculation. See fit.xyz.

Details

RMSD is a standard measure of structural distance between coordinate sets.

Structure a[a.inds] and b[b.inds] should have the same length.

A least-squares fit is performed prior to RMSD calculation by setting fit=TRUE. See the function fit.xyz for more details of the fitting process.

Value

Returns a numeric vector of RMSD value(s).
