TITLEPNP Type Equations with Diffusion from Lennard-Jones Potentials

ABSTRACT The Lennard-Jones (LJ) potential, a well-known mathematical model for the interaction between a pair of ions, has important applications in many fields of biology, chemistry and physics. In this talk, I will introduce a new approach of the LJ potential and a way to get the diffusion of the approximate LJ potential, which may modify Poisson-Nernst-Planck (PNP) equations in order to describe ion transport in biological channels.
