The intersection of nonlinear science, molecular biology, and condensed matter physics. Viewpoints
This conference, Nonlinear Excitations in Biomolecules (Les Houches, May 30 — June 4, 1994) has had a quite different purpose from the conventional scientific meeting; rather than focusing on a specific well developed topic or problems, the purpose here was to bring together scientists in three cultures — Molecular Biology, Condensed Matter Physics, and Nonlinear Science — as a first step toward addressing the question whether there are problems at the biomolecular level where new progress can be made through an interdisciplinary approach, particularly in theoretical and modeling methods.
