Many thanks, really helpful, in my idea your following sentence,
should be added to 'ParseFEP Plugin' manual:
"The farthest you are from second-order perturbation theory, the slower the
convergence of your Gram-Charlier expansion."

Subject: Re: namd-l: Convergence of the Gram-Charlier expansion
you can restate your free energy change,
where g(∆U) is a Gaussian distribution and Hn(∆U) are Hermite polynomials.
The farthest you are from second-order perturbation theory, the
convergence of your Gram-Charlier expansion.
As for the order, it is pretty much system dependent. Charging a
Waals particle will evidently be pretty quick.
