I'm trying to estimate the configurational entropy of a small molecule using
gmx anaeig. However, it does not allow me to use a mass-weighted covariance
matrix for the calculation (only allow me to use mass-unweighted CV matrix).
Theoretically, the use of a mass unweighted CV matrix for entropy calculation
is inaccurate (frequencies going to be smaller). Does anybody know the accuracy
of the entropy calculated using gmx anaeig? Also, is there any way to use a
mass-weighted CV matrix for this calculation?
The entropy is only the conformational entropy and can therefore be used
for determining relative entropies, for instance for ligand binding (J
Chem Theory Comput 9 pp. 4542-4551 (2013)). If you want to compute
absolute entropies then for now normal mode analysis is the most
efficient, even though it has limitations as well. See J Phys Chem A.
122 pp. 8982-8988 (2018).
Sorry to promote my own papers but this is what I know :)
Thank you so much for the help
