On regularization of charge singularities in solving the Poisson-Boltzmann equation with a smooth solute-solvent boundary.
TLDR
A novel regularization formulation is proposed to capture the singularity analytically, which is the first of its kind for diffuse interface PB models and validated by calculating electrostatic free energies for a set of proteins and by estimating salt affinities for seven protein complexes.

A DIFFUSE-INTERFACE APPROACH FOR MODELING TRANSPORT, DIFFUSION AND ADSORPTION/DESORPTION OF MATERIAL QUANTITIES ON A DEFORMABLE INTERFACE.
A method is presented to solve two-phase problems involving a material quantity on an interface. The interface can be advected, stretched, and change topology, and material can be adsorbed to or
A super-Gaussian Poisson–Boltzmann model for electrostatic free energy calculation: smooth dielectric distribution for protein cavities and in both water and vacuum states
TLDR
A novel super-Gaussian dielectric PB model is introduced in this work, which devices an inhomogeneousDielectric distribution to represent the compactness of atoms and characterizes empty cavities via a gap dielectrics value.
Application of the level-set method to the implicit solvation of nonpolar molecules.
TLDR
The level-set method captures solvent dewetting (nanobubble formation) and quantitatively describes the interaction in the strongly hydrophobic plate system and shows good agreement for the solvation energies when compared to available molecular dynamics simulations.
Phase-field approach to implicit solvation of biomolecules with Coulomb-field approximation.
TLDR
A phase-field variational implicit-solvent approach is developed for the solvation of charged molecules that can capture capillary evaporation in hydrophobic confinement and corresponding multiple equilibrium states as found in molecular dynamics simulations.
Dipolar Poisson-Boltzmann equation: ions and dipoles close to charge interfaces.
TLDR
An extension to the Poisson-Boltzmann model where the dipolar features of solvent molecules are taken explicitly into account is presented and can be extended to any order in a systematic expansion.

A major revival in the use of classical electrostatics as an approach to the study of charged and polar molecules in aqueous solution has been made possible through the development of fast numerical

TLDR
An implementation of a Gaussian-based approach to deliver the dielectric constant distribution throughout the protein and surrounding water phase by utilizing the 3D structure of the corresponding macromolecule is reported.
