3.12. Kspace styles

Classes that compute long-range Coulombic interactions via K-space representations (Ewald, PPPM) are derived from the KSpace class. New styles can be created to add new K-space options to LAMMPS.

Ewald.cpp is an example of computing K-space interactions.

Here is a brief description of methods you define in your new derived class. See kspace.h for details.


initialize the calculation before a run


computation before the first timestep of a run


every-timestep computation


tally of memory usage
