Subject: AMBER: EEL and 1-4 EEL; VDWAALS and 1-4 VDWAALS

Dear All,

I could not find an answer to my question regarding EEL and VDWAALS in the
amber mailing list; so I would like to ask a basic question.

After minimization, the .out file has the decomposed energies for each
step, such as BOND, ANGLE, DIHED, VDWAALS, EEL, HBOND, 1-4 VDW, 1-4 EEL,
RESTRAINT, etc. As far as I understood, EEL is the electrostatic energy,
which excludes the electrostatic energies of the 1-4 interactions, am I
right? If yes, what is the importance of 1-4 EEL? And the same goes for
VDWALLS energy; what would be the importance of the 1-4 VDW?
