Hi Davide –


The best way to assess this is to perform a series of calculations with increase “dime” values.

Subject: [Apbs-users] Checking convergence of the energy with the grid spacing


Dear APBS users,

I apologize in advance if my will be a stupid question.

I am just wondering how to check if the electrostatic binding energy calculated has converged with the grid spacing used.
There are some parameters in the log file (io*.mc file) that I can check to understand about the convergence?

Thanks in advance for your help.
