I don't know for sure what you mean by 2s+1, but the only thing I can
think of is the QM spin multiplicity. There's no connection between that
quantity and the multiplicity of a dihedral cosine function (except the name).

Adjusting force field parameters is highly specialized work; if you're not
sure about the meaning of the force field terms, then you probably
shouldn't go there.
