Not a regular LAMMPS user for now, but I was wondering if there is an easy, or not-so easy, way to implement a non-pairwise potential in LAMMPS. The model I have describes accurately the potential felt by one layer deposited on another bilayer. 

Its parameters are the interlayer distance as well as the displacement given by x and y coordinates of an atom in the top layer with respect to the bottom layer, thus providing information for any stacking possible stacking configuration encountered in a moire system.

I have looked into the manual as well as existing threads, but I have not found much beyond the implementation of simple pairwise potentials (or simple improvements thereupon).

​you may want to check out this:

​structural biases have also been implemented as fixes, e.g. these:



Any suggestion or reference to existing attempts to do this before I dive into the source code?

Thank you.
