Hi Jeff and Stephen,
There are only a few places where periodicity is used, and it looks like sphere's are one of them. It might be worthwhile to take this opportunity to factor out the domain shifting, set a 'periodicity' boolean on StaticOutput, and then add a "shift_domain" function for selection. Then rather than something like:
for off_i in [-1, 0, 1]: for off_j in [-1, 0, 1]: for off_k in [-1, 0, 1]: left = left + off_i * domain_width ...
one could do:
for off_i, off_j, off_k in offset_domain(pf): ...
This way when it's not periodic, you just get back 0's, and when it is, you get back 1's. Anwyay, for spheres I'd specificalyl look in the calculation of Radius and in the geometry_finding_mixing.py module to see where the shifting occurs. It should be in both the get_list_of_grids function for AMRSphere and in the Radius function in universal_fields.py.

I want to define a sphere with a center that sits on one face of my domain, [0., 0.5, 0.5] in unitary coordinates. However, the boundary conditions in this case are not periodic, and so I don't want periodicity.
I agree that it should be possible to turn off periodicity for a sphere. Before it's fixed, I think you can use a boolean container (test this below, I haven't!):
base_sp = pf.h.sphere([0, 0.5, 0.5], 0.25) box = pf.h.region([0.5]*3, [0.75, 0.25, 0.25], [1, 0.75, 0.75]) sp = pf.h.boolean([base_sp, "NOT", box])
Let me know if you run into trouble.
