Dear OVITO team and users,

I would like to use OVITO for calculating the slip vector. I'm not sure whether a function of calculating the distances between the selected atom and its nearest neighbors.

Because "Atomic Strain" can calculate the atomic deformation gradient tensor F, F should be calculated from the distances between the selected atom and its nearest neighbors.

By using the attached equation, the slip vector can be calculated.

I'm wondering whether the python script could calculate the slip vector by using some existed functions.

Best Regards,

Wenbo
