We compare a nonlinear model for the dielectric effect with a standard discontinuous dielectric model. We also compare both with a discontinuous dielectric model which has an intermediate value in a region between the low dielectric and high dielectric regions in the standard model. These results demonstrate that predictions of the electrostatic environment near the surface of a protein depend strongly on the behavior of the dielectric near the surface.
