Dietmar will take half an hour to discuss the polymerisation ratchet, respectively Brownian ratchet a version of which was introduced by Peskin, Odell, Oster in their 1993 Biophys. J. paper. According to their abstract it's "a model for how chemical reactions generate protrusive forces by rectifying Brownian motion".

About Applied and computational maths seminars

Our seminars bring together UQ's applied and computational mathematics communities.

UQ and invited scientists deliver the presentations, which are informal and promote discussion.

We welcome suggestions for speakers and topics from staff, students and visitors, and encourage students to share their work.

Our seminars are usually held on Thursdays from 3pm to 4pm.

To suggest a topic or speaker, and for more information, contact Dr Dietmar Oelz or Dr Cecilia Gonzalez Tokman.
