The atom near the ”edge” of the simulation box interacts with atoms contained in the neighboring image of the box. In computer simulations,​ one of these is the original simulation box, and others are copies called images. During the simulation, only the properties of the original simulation box need to be recorded and propagated. The minimum-image convention is a common form of PBC particle bookkeeping in which each individual particle in the simulation interacts with the closest image of the remaining particles in the system.
