@article{Bhattacharjee1997DynamicsOU, title={Dynamics of unbinding of polymers in a random medium}, author={Somendra M Bhattacharjee and A. Baumgārtner}, journal={Journal of Chemical Physics}, year={1997}, volume={107}, pages={7571-7576} }

We have studied the aging effect on the dynamics of unbinding of a double stranded directed polymer in a random medium. By using the Monte Carlo dynamics of a lattice model in two dimensions, for which disorder is known to be relevant, the unbinding dynamics is studied by allowing the bound polymer to relax in the random medium for a waiting time and then allowing the two strands to unbind. The subsequent dynamics is formulated in terms of the overlap of the two strands and also the overlap of…

The onset of a sharp change in ddT( is the Debye-Waller factor and T is temperature) in proteins, which is controversially indentified with the glass transition in liquids, is shown to be general for glass formers and observable in computer simulations of strong and fragile ionic liquids, where it proves to be close to the experimental glass transition temperature.
