Foundations of biomaterials: Models of protein solvation
Abstract: We discuss both continuum and atomic scale models of solvation and the hydrophobic effect. We describe their application to modeling of protein-ligand interactions. A key result is the development of a nonlocal model that can be computed in only twice the time required for the standard model, despite the fact that formally the nonlocal model is a six-dimensional PDE.
