This is (somewhat regrettably) implemented in multiple places in the
code - often piecewise. The function is:
S(r) = (r2^2 - r^2)^2 * (r2^2 - 3*r1^2 + 2*r^2) / (r2^2 - r1^2)^3
on the interval (r1, r2) where r1 = switchdist and r2 = cutoff (the
latter are the NAMD keyword names).
This is a sixth order polynomial, but I believe it is something like a
third order Chebyshev polynomial expansion of tan(2*x-1) when x is taken
as (r^2 - r1^2) / (r2^2 - r1^2) (or something similar)
