Announcing AeroPython!


I haven't lectured in two years. I've of course been teaching, but have stopped using the method known as "the lecture"—delivering a set amount of material (aka, "covering") from the front of the classroom to a group of mostly quiet, note-taking students. Like greater profs before me, I am a converted lecturer.1 It was Spring... Continue »

Accepted: Biomolecular electrostatics solver using Python and GPUs

Surface charge plot on a lysozyme molecule, obtained using the PyGBe code.

Submitted: 20 September, 2013. Accepted: 24 October, 2013. This paper presents a study of the effect of solvent-filled cavities and Stern layers in a biomolecular electrostatics solver based on a boundary integral formulation. The tool for this study was the PyGBe code: a solver for biomolecular electrostatics using Python, GPUs and boundary elements. To determine... Continue »
