### The Tilt

Posted:

**Thu Jun 18, 2009 9:46 am**hello everybody,

I was just wondering, if I got the right idea about the tilt angle, because the paper referenced [13] in the hippo-wikipedia, didn't helped me to understand the method for the tilt-calculation and what is the difference between tilt and kink. The "kink" method seems to be clear, based on the method explained in the paper (SWINK and the fit through the helices with N and C vector).

Plz help me to understand what a tilt is and how it is calculated by hippo.

Thanks allot for all your help,
