* Our periodicity is kernel independant but is not a real/usual periodicity.
* We simply repeat the simulation box a high number of times which means that if
* needed the simulation box can be repeated a million times in each direction.
* In order to enable this feature nothing special is needed, any ScalFMM kernel can
* be used with this periodicity.
* Moreover the usual FMM garantees apply here because we are doing nothing more than a FMM.
* Please refer to the Periodic example to know more and test the degree of repetition based on 
* the "-per" parameter.

 * \subsection Limitation
 * Our periodic system supports only cubic box for now (it is not possible to choose in wich directions the periodicity
 * applies.
