Programm / Abstract:
In soft matter systems electrostatic effects are often of utmost importance. Their mathematical description is commonly based on mean-field type theories, the standard approach being the Poisson-Boltzmann equation. This equation is known to fail if charge correlation effects, e.g., due to the presence of image charges at interfaces, become important. In this talk I will explain how one can go beyond the Poisson-Boltzmann equation in order to treat such mechanisms. As two exemplary applications I will discuss the correlation-induced adsorption of DNA on like-charged surfaces and the conversion of ionic currents in DNA translocation through nanopores.
