Class SigmaElectronegativityDescriptor

All Implemented Interfaces:
IAtomicDescriptor, IDescriptor

public class SigmaElectronegativityDescriptor extends AbstractAtomicDescriptor implements IAtomicDescriptor
Atomic descriptor that reflects that Gasteiger-Marsili sigma electronegativity. The used approach is given by
X = a + bq + c(q*q)
where a, b, and c are the Gasteiger-Marsili parameters and q is the sigma charge. For the actual calculation it uses the Electronegativity class.
Parameters for this descriptor:
Name Default Description
maxIterations 0 Number of maximum iterations

    • getDescriptorNames

      public String[] getDescriptorNames()
      Description copied from interface: IDescriptor
      Returns an array of names for each descriptor value calculated. Many descriptors return multiple values. In general it is useful for the descriptor to indicate the names for each value. In many cases, these names can be as simple as X1, X2, ..., XN where X is a prefix and 1, 2, ..., N are the indices. On the other hand it is also possible to return other arbitrary names, which should be documented in the Javadocs for the descriptor (e.g., the CPSA descriptor). Note that by default if a descriptor returns a single value (such as ALOGPDescriptor the return array will have a single element
      Specified by:
      getDescriptorNames in interface IDescriptor
      An array of descriptor names, equal in length to the number of descriptor calculated..
