There are no references for these equations. Carnal will be
dropped from Amber, so there is no plan to document it further.
Radial distribution involves dividing the number of cases
within a given radial shell by the volume of the shell. I
forget the meaning of radius of gyration, but the formula
should be relatively easy to see by looking at the code,
also it shouldn't be hard to find the formula on the web
or in a textbook.
