A direct-lattice summation scheme is described which is completely general for one-, two-, and three-dimensional periodic arrays of point charges. This scheme is based on a proper rearrangement of terms within the lattice sum. Rapid convergence is achieved by appropriate cancellation of multipolar terms.
