Computer Simulation of Biological Ion Channels

Hoyles, Matthew

Description

This thesis describes a project in which algorithms are developed for the rapid and accurate solution of Poisson's equation in the presence of a dielectric boundary and multiple point charges. These algorithms are then used to perform Brownian dynamics simulations on realistic models of biological ion channels. An iterative method of solution, in which the dielectric boundary is tiled with variable sized surface charge sectors, provides the flexibility to deal with arbitrarily shaped...[Show more]
