|Title:||Complex behavior in biosystems: an information-theoretic approach|
|Abstract:||The particular question of transport of vibrational energy in biosystems is considered within the scope of Frohlich-Davydov's model. It is shown that Davydov's solitary waves, strongly damped in near equilibrium conditions, can display long-range propagation when travelling in Frohlich's condensate. The latter consists in the emergence of a self-organized dissipative structure (in Prigogine's sense), resembling a nonequilibrium Bose-Einstein-like condensation in the low-lying in frequency modes of vibration, once a critical level of pumping of metabolic energy is achieved.
