# Simulation of rotations and translations of a monomer (M_{2}) with respect to its neighbor (M_{1}) in an assembly.

The monomers have hydrophobic moment vectors **H**_{1} and **H**_{2}. **x, y** and **z** labels denote the three axis of rotation. The distance vector between **H**_{1} and **H**_{2} defines the **x**–axis. Vector **H**_{2} rotation around this axis is visualized in the pale blue ellipses. The **y–**axis is defined by the perpendicular formed by the **x**–axis and the original vector **H**_{2}. Rotation of **H**_{2} around this axis is viewed in the reddish ellipses. The **z**–axis is defined by the perpendicular direction to both **x**–axis and **y**–axis, viewed in the greenish ellipses. The same criteria are used to define the electric dipole moments rotations. Three translations are defined. In translation 1, monomers are positioned parallel side-by-side. Translation 2, monomers are positioned parallel one on top of the other. Translation 3, monomers are positioned in a combination of the former two.
