Category GEOM

Name:
'geom'

Description:

   Data items in the GEOM and related (GEOM_ANGLE,
   GEOM_BOND, GEOM_CONTACT, GEOM_HBOND and GEOM_TORSION)
   categories record details about the molecular
   geometry as calculated from the contents of the ATOM, CELL
   and SYMMETRY data.

   Geometry data are therefore redundant, in that they can be
   calculated from other more fundamental quantities in the data
   block. However, they provide a check on the correctness of
   both sets of data and enable the most important geometric data
   to be identified for publication by setting the appropriate
   publication flag.
