From Adsorption on Reconstructible Surfaces to Fractional Statistics and Life Phenomena
Abstract:A general theory, which takes explicitly into account the phenomena occurring at reconstructible surfaces while adsorption or desorption proceed, is described. The theory contains a few free parameters that specify the adsorption and desorption rate constants, and the reconstruction and irreversibility degrees of the process. The theory can be modified to account for phenomena (like adsorption on soft adsorbates, fractional statistics, or the cellular cycle) even very different from the original embodiment.
