The fix applies a force to atoms given by the potential
as described in (Pedersen).
This field, which biases configurations with long-range order, can be used to study crystal-liquid interfaces and determine melting temperatures (Pedersen).
An example of using the interface pinning method is located in the examples/USER/misc/rhok directory.
This fix is part of the USER-MISC package. It is only enabled if LAMMPS was built with that package. See the Build package doc page for more info.
