Detailed Description

Commands that specify angle forces.

Angles add forces between specified triplets of particles and are typically used to model chemical angles between two bonds. Angles between particles are set when an input XML file is read (init.read_xml) or when an another initializer creates them (like init.create_random_polymers)

By themselves, angles that have been specified in an input file do nothing. Only when you specify an angle force (i.e. angle.harmonic), are forces actually calculated between the listed particles.
