fix_modify AtC fe_md_boundary interpolate


Specifies different methods for computing fluxes between between the MD and FE integration regions. Faceset defines a faceset separating the MD and FE regions and uses finite element face quadrature to compute the flux. Interpolate uses a reconstruction scheme to approximate the flux, which is more robust but less accurate if the MD/FE boundary does correspond to a faceset. No boundary results in no fluxes between the systems being computed.


If faceset is used, all the AtC non-boundary atoms must lie within and completely fill the domain enclosed by the faceset.
