High-productivity, high-performance workflow for virus-scale electrostatic simulations with Bempp-Exafmm

Preprint: arXiv:2103.01048, 1 Mar 2021. Submitted: 22 Mar. 2021. Abstract Biomolecular electrostatics is key in protein function and the chemical processes affecting it.Implicit-solvent models expressed by the Poisson-Boltzmann (PB) equation can provide insights with less computational power than full atomistic models, making large-system studies—at the scale of viruses, for example —accessible to more researchers.
