This section covers the Ding-Andersen germanium parameters as they are implemented into the towhee_ff_Ding1986
file in the ForceFields directory. All of the Towhee atom types for this force field
are listed, along with a short description of their meanings. This force field was intended for solid germanium.
It uses the Stillinger-Weber potential type.
Any discrepencies (especially typos) from the published values
are the sole responsibility of Marcus G. Martin, and I welcome feedback on how this implementation compares
with other programs.

The official force field name for Ding-Andersen germanium parameters is 'Ding1986'. Here I list the
atom names for use in the towhee_input file, along with a brief description (although
the meaning of the atom names should be obvious).
Please note that the capitalization and spacing pattern is important
and must be followed exactly as listed here.
There are generally no coulombic interactions for this potential.
This force field does not have improper torsions.
This force field does not have parameters for proteins.
