Fluctuation theorem and large deviation function for a solvable model of a molecular motor.

Abstract

We study a discrete stochastic model of a molecular motor. This discrete model can be viewed as a minimal ratchet model. We extend our previous work on this model, by further investigating the constraints imposed by the fluctuation theorem on the operation of a molecular motor far from equilibrium. In this work, we show the connections between different… (More)
