We used to apply periodic boundary condition to simulate an infinite system. What will happen if the interactions between atoms do not drop to zero even when they are infinitely far away? Is the periodic boundary still valid? How can I prove the periodic boundary condition is valid or not? thanks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
