Markov models with discrete states, such as closed in equilibrium with closed in equilibrium with open have been widely used to model the kinetics of ion channels in the cell membrane. In these models the transition probabilities per unit time (the kinetic rate constants) are independent of the time scale on which they are measured. However, in many physical systems, a property, L, depends on the scale, epsilon, at which it is measured such that L(epsilon) alpha epsilon 1-D where D is the… CONTINUE READING
