Convergence of PyGBE with Kirkwood sphere

<p>This file bundle includes data, figures and plotting scripts of convergence results for PyGBe and APBS using a spherical molecule of radius 4 Armstrong with a centered charge of –1e. The errors were calculated with respect to the corresponding extrapolated values (obtained from Richardson extrapolation).</p> <p>This result is part of the paper:</p> <p>—"A biomolecular electrostatics solver using Python, GPUs and boundary elements that can handle solvent-filled cavities and Stern layers", Christopher D.
