Detailed Description

The base class restraint function implements the interface used by all other restraint types. But it also provides a useful restraint function itself: a harmonic oscillator potential (quadratic). There are two adjustable parameters: mean and overall weight.

Member Function Documentation

double RestraintFunction::estimate_min ( )

The default value 0 is convenient for most cases. When the variable is at its mean location, the function should be 0, otherwise it should be some positive value.

int RestraintFunction::set_pars ( prf_xml::XML_Node pars)

The node must be called parameters . It must have a field called mean and another called weight. These fields are inheritted by all other restraint functions, so they don't need their own.

Reimplemented in prf::CircularNormal, prf::GaussianRestraint, prf::FlattenedPL, and prf::PowerLawRestraint.
