Nonlinear Poisson-Nernst Planck Equations for Ion Flux through Confined Geometries

  title={Nonlinear Poisson-Nernst Planck Equations for Ion Flux through Confined Geometries},
  author={Martin Burger and B{\"a}rbel Schlake and M-T Wolfram},
The mathematical modelling and simulation of ion transport trough biological and synthetic channels (nanopores) is a challenging problem, with direct application in biophysics, physiology and chemistry. At least two major effects have to be taken into account when creating such models: the electrostatic interaction of ions and the effects due to size exclusion in narrow regions. While mathematical models and methods for electrostatic interactions are welldeveloped and can be transfered from… CONTINUE READING
