gmx sorient analyzes solvent orientation around solutes. It calculates two angles between
the vector from one or more reference positions to the first atom of each solvent

· theta_1: the angle with the vector from the first atom of the solvent molecule to the
midpoint between atoms 2 and 3.

· theta_2: the angle with the normal of the solvent plane, defined by the same three
atoms, or, when the option -v23 is set, the angle with the vector between atoms 2 and

The reference can be a set of atoms or the center of mass of a set of atoms. The group of
solvent atoms should consist of 3 atoms per solvent molecule. Only solvent molecules
between -rmin and -rmax are considered for -o and -no each frame.

-o: distribution of cos(theta_1) for rmin<=r<=rmax.

-no: distribution of cos(theta_2) for rmin<=r<=rmax.

-ro: <cos(theta_1)> and <3cos(^2theta_2)-1> as a function of the distance.

-co: the sum over all solvent molecules within distance r of cos(theta_1) and
3cos(^2(theta_2)-1) as a function of r.

-rc: the distribution of the solvent molecules as a function of r
