Re: CCL:Alternative to dielectric for polarization in Poisson equation.

Look for polarizable force fields like the Direct Reaction Field approach

I would like to use the Poisson Boltzmann equation to model
polymerization. This approach requires the use of a dielectric value for
the monomers. When the monomers are far apart, this may produce
reasonable results. However, as the monomers approach each other, a
constant scalar dielectric model will break down. Does anybody know of
any papers that correct for polarization using some other approach?
