Investigation of the Stochastic Dynamics of Nanomotor Protein: Effect of Bistable Potential Type
Abstract:The stochastic dynamics of nanomotor based on Langevin equation using two different types of bistable potentials in their symmetric and asymmetric forms in presence of thermal noise is investigated. The asymmetric bistable potentials have two minima which have been separated by potential barrier with two different coupling strengths. The effect of both symmetric and asymmetric bistable potentials on the stationary probability density and the mean current is studied. Of the topics to be discussed are the dependency of the current on the noise intensity, the coupling strength, the equilibrium distance and the driving force for both bistable potentials.
