Several properties related to the atomic bonds and angles between them can be computed using the R.I.N.G.S. code

In the R.I.N.G.S. code the existence or the absence of a bond between two atoms *i* of species α and *j* of species β is determined by the analysis of the partial **g*** _{αβ}(r)* and total

**g**

*(r)*radial distribution functions.

Precisely the program will consider that a bond exists if the interatomic distance

*D*is smaller than both the cutoff given to desribe the maximum distance for first neighbor atoms between the species

_{ij}*α*and

*β*,

*Rcut*(often the first minimum of the partial radial distribution function

_{αβ}**g**

*), and the first minimum of the total radial distribution function,*

_{αβ}(r)*Rcut*.
