abstract={The Coulomb potentials and fields in infinite point charge lattices are represented by series expansions in real and reciprocal space using a method similar to that devised by Bertaut. A systematic investigation is made into the relative convergence characteristics of series derived by varying the charge spreading function which is required in the theory. A number of formulas which are already in use are compared with new expressions derived by this method.},

The Ewald method is equivalent to consider a surrounding conductor ($\epsilon=\infty$). The method described in this document and implemented in ScalFMM consider a finite set of the original box surrounded by a vacuum with dielectric constant $\epsilon=1$. The results by these two approaches are different \cite{DeLeeuw1980, Heyes1981} and for a very large sphere surrounding all boxes we have the following equation

The first test consists in a small crystal $4\times4\times4$ of NaCl. It is composed of 128 atoms The second tests is a larger crystal $10\times10\times10$ of NaCl and have 2000 atoms. The positions and the forces are stored in the \texttt{REVCON} file and the energy in the \texttt{STATIS} file. The EWald's parameter are chosen such that the Ewald sum precision is $10^{-08}$.
