Closing the Gap between Life and Physics

Boekbijdrage - Hoofdstuk

Examination of the scalar properties of living organisms and the electronic configuration of crystalline structures suggests that related modeling may be used for both. This paper comments on individual and common properties of the two systems and draws a comparison between them. Both exhibit multiple 'scales' separated by complex or forbidden regions and a global 'overview' of their scalar properties. We conclude that the analogy may provide a fruitful route towards extension of the modeling of both living organisms and electronic materials, by permitting bootstrapping cross-modeling between them.
