The thermodynamic properties of Davydov-Scott's protein model in thermal bath

By A. Sulaiman, F. P Zen, H. Alatas and L. T. Handoko

Abstract

The thermodynamic properties of Davydov-Scott monomer contacting with thermal bath is investigated using Lindblad open quantum system formalism. The Lindblad equation is investigated through path integral method. It is found that the environmental effects contribute destructively to the specific heat, and large interaction between amide-I and amide-site is not preferred for a stable Davydov-Scott monomer.Comment: 8 pages, Proceeding of the Conference in Honour of Murray Gell-Mann's 80th Birthday : Quantum Mechanics, Elementary Particles, Quantum Cosmology and Complexity (2011) 661-66
