[]Trait lumol::energy::Computation

pub trait Computation: Send + Sync {
    fn compute_energy(&self, r: f64) -> f64;
fn compute_force(&self, r: f64) -> f64; }

Alternative energy and forces computation.

The Computation trait represent an alternative way to compute a given potential. For example using interpolation on a table or on a grid, from a Fourier decomposition, etc.

/// This is just a thin wrapper logging every time the `energy/force`
/// methods are called.
