Bio.SVDSuperimposer Namespace Reference


namespace  SVDSuperimposer

Detailed Description

SVDSuperimposer finds the best rotation and translation to put
two point sets on top of each other (minimizing the RMSD). This is 
eg. useful to superimpose crystal structures. SVD stands for singular 
value decomposition, which is used in the algorithm.
