Abstract

The Rokhlin-Greengard fast multipole algorithm for evaluating Coulomb and multipole potentials has been implemented and analyzed in three dimensions. The implementation is presented for bounded charged systems and systems with periodic boundary conditions. The results include timings and error characterizations.
