Non-exponential relaxation time scales in disordered systems: An application to protein dynamics

Iori, G., Marinari, E. and Parisi, G. (1994). Non-exponential relaxation time scales in disordered systems: An application to protein dynamics. Europhysics Letters, 25(7), doi: 10.1209/0295-5075/25/7/003

Abstract

We study the dynamics of a heteropolymeric chain relaxing toward a new equilibrium configuration after the action of an external perturbation. We compare the results from Monte Carlo simulations with the results of a Langevin normal-mode decomposition. We discuss, for the sake of comparison, the case of an ordered homopolymeric chain. We discuss the dependence of the relaxation stretching exponent on the system size by studying chains constituted by 15 and 30 points.
