The notion of well-separated sets is crucial in fast multipole methods as the main idea is to approximate the interaction between such sets via cluster expansions. We revisit the one-parameter multipole acceptance criterion in a general setting and derive a relative error estimate. This analysis benefits asymmetric versions of the method, where the division of the multipole boxes is more liberal than in conventional codes. Such variants offer a particularly elegant implementation with a balanced multipole tree, a feature which might be very favorable on modern computer architectures.
