    The authors study theoretically the electrostatic equilibria for a shell filled with a suspension of polyions (e.g., colloids, polyelectrolytes, etc.) and immersed in an infinite salt-free reservoir. The shell is treated as impermeable for polyions, but allowing free diffusion of counterions....
