Re: [lammps-users] MD simulations in hexagon prism unit cell

Dear Andrew,

  many thanks for your message. I want to know if image flags are used
during MD simulation. I cannot think of providing image box for
hexagon prism unit cell (not hexagonal). I can wrap the coordinates
back into simulation box, but it is not trivial to set image flags for
my system.

Best Regards,
