Towards Cross-Modeling between Life and Solid StatePhysics

Book Contribution - Chapter

We develop a hierarchical model for an organism which is primarily
based on structural scale. This is then compared with the Kronig-Penney model
for electron propagation in a crystal. Both models exhibit similar multi-level
structure, where the levels are separated by complex or forbidden regions. We
conclude that cross-modeling between natural hierarchy and electron band
structures may help in formulating future models of biological systems.
