The Nernst Equilibrium

  • Christoph Börgers
Part of the Texts in Applied Mathematics book series (TAM, volume 66)


Charged particles, namely ions, diffuse in water in the brain. There is a field of study called electro-diffusion theory concerned with the diffusion of charged particles. In this chapter, we study one electro-diffusion problem that is crucial for understanding nerve cells.
