Solitary Excitations in DNA Double Helices

Biopolymers which carry wide varieties of correlations and couplings can be regarded as higher order nonlinear systems in which biological functions proper to them are performed. Therefore it is expected that the theory of nonlinear waves will provide adequate tools to clarify the molecular mechanisms of biological functions.
