That would be fine.

 

In my experience the size of the PME grid doesnít contribute greatly to the
computational cost, provided it can be easily factored. So donít worry
about a density being higher than absolutely necessary (at least 1 grid
point per A^3).

Hi,

In the PME section of the input file of the Ubiquitin tutorial, one can
read:

Furthermore, for speed in computing Fast Fourier Transforms, PMEGridSizeX
should be chosen so that it can be factorized by 2, 3, or 5. If your
cellBasisVector1 = (60, 0, 0), a good choice for PMEGridSizeX might be 64,
since 60 Ň / 64 = 0.9375 Ň and $64=2^{6}$.

I am not a mathematician and I am not very familiar FFTs. I have the
following situation:

cellBasisVector1 = (86, 0, 0)
cellBasisVector2 = (0, 73, 0)
cellBasisVector3 = (0, 0, 108)

Should I make, for instance:

PMEGridSizeX = 90 (2*3^2*5)
PMEGridSizeY = 80 (2^4*5)
PMEGridSizeZ = 120 (2^3*3*5)

?
