Multiscale Analysis of Ionic Transport in Periodic Charged Media

Claudia Timofte

Abstract


A macroscopic model for describing the ion transport in periodic charged porous media is rigorously derived. Our results can serve as a tool for biophysicists to analyze the ion transport through protein channels. Also, such a model is useful for describing the flow of electrons and holes in a semiconductor device.

Keywords


Homogenization, ion transport, the periodic unfolding method.
