Computes pseudocontact shifts using the PDE method.




Computes the three-dimensional distribution of pseudocontact shift field by solving Kuprov-Charnock equation for PCS. For further information on the equations and algorithms used in this function see


    probden - paramagnetic centre probability density cube.

    chi     - electron magnetic susceptibility tensor in cubic Angstroms.

    ranges  - Cartesian axis extents for the electron spin density cube
              as [xmin xmax ymin ymax zmin zmax] in angstroms.

    nxyz    - nuclear coordinates as [x y z] with multiple rows) at which
              PCS is to be evaluated, in Angstroms.

    method  - 'fft' for Fourier transfrom solver (recommended), 'fdiff'
              for a finite difference solver.


    pcs_vals - pseudocontact shift in ppm at each nucleus.

    pcs_cube - pseudocontact shift field on the same grid as the spin 
               density supplied.


See the pseudocontact shift analysis tutorial and the examples in nmr_paramag directory of the standard example set supplied with Spinach.


Minimal three-point schemes are used for the finite difference operators. Increase stencil size in the source code if you have enough memory. Beware of the periodic boundary condition effects - leave enough space on all sides of your paramagnetic centre probability density for the wraparound PCS to become negligible.
