# Surfaces for Continuum Modeling

One of the goal of our research group is to develop methods for the computation of the Molecular Surface with particular attention on the consequences of its definition on the electrostatics component of the solvation free energy. To this end, we developed NanoShaper, a tool to build, triangulate and analyze the Molecular Surface according to several definitions and that can build a Finite Differences grid to solve a PDE, for instance the Poisson-Boltzmann equation.
