 +====== Periodicity ======
 +The Cp2k program is optimized for periodic calculations,​ and those are the default, still it is possible to perform also other kinds of calculations. First an important thing to note is that by convention the cell goes from 0 to h, not from -h/2 to h/2, thus if you want to put a cluster at the center of the cell you need to put it in h/2 not in 0.
 +The periodicity of the neighbor list, and thus of the gaussian collocation/​integration is controlled by ''​FORCE_EVAL%SUBSYS%CELL%PERIODIC''​.
 +The poisson solver (electrostatics) is controlled in the section
 +''​FORCE_EVAL%DFT%POISSON''​. The possible poisson solver are chosen with the ''​POISSON_SOLVER''​ keyword, that can have the values ​
 +  * ''​PERIODIC'',​ which can do only fully periodic solvers,
 +  * ''​ANALYTIC''​ which can do 0, 1d and 2d periodic solutions using analytical green functions in the g space (slow convergence),​
 +  * ''​MT''​ Martyna Tuckermann decoupling, that interacts only with the nearest neighbor, beware these are completely wrong in the cell is smaller than twice the cluster size (with electronic density),
 +  * ''​MULTIPOLE'',​ uses a schema that fits the total charge with one gaussian per atom
 +The periodicity of the poisson solver (electrostatics) is set in ''​FORCE_EVAL%DFT%POISSON%PERIODIC'',​ and the poisson solver chosen should support it.
