Subject: Re: [AMBER] Partial interactions

you could make molecule A appearing and molecule C disappearing, while B
stays the same. That way, A and C would never interact. Of course, B would
only interact with a lambda-dependent, mixed version of the potential from
A and C.

To get exactly what you describe, I think you would have to modify the
code, e.g. specifically disregard a given number of interactions.

Kind Regards,
