Abstract

Field theoretic approaches have been particularly useful in studying soft matter systems, such as colloidal and biological systems, where long range electrostatic interactions are important. For weakly coupled systems, the eld theoretic methods reduce to the commonly known Poisson-Boltzmann (PB) theory [Chapman (1913); Gouy (1910)], which has been shown to be very accurate for these systems, and has been used with great success to understand and solve numerous problems in soft matter.
