"""Fix the center of mass of specific types.

Subtracts mass-weighted fraction of the total
force action on all particles of the type from
the particles after each force calculation. This
keeps the center of mass of the type fixed iff
the total momentum of the type is zero.

Parameters
----------
types : array_like
List of types of which the center of mass
should be fixed.
