A model of the active transport of ions in a cardiac muscle cell, which takes into account the active transport of Na(+), K(+), Ca(2+), Mg(2+), HCO(3)(-) and Cl(-) ions, has been constructed. The model allows independent calculations of the resting potential at the biomembrane and concentrations of basic ions (sodium, potassium, chlorine, magnesium...

The problem of the wave function collapse (a problem of measurement in quantum mechanics) is considered. It is shown that it can be solved based on quantum mechanics and does not require any additional assumptions or new theories. The particle creation and annihilation processes, which are described based on quantum field theory, play a key role in...
Article
The current protein folding literature is reviewed. Two main approaches to the problem of folding were selected for this review: geometrical and biophysical. The geometrical approach allows the formulation of topological restrictions on folding, that are usually not taken into account in the construction of physical models. In particular, the topol...

In this study, a model is constructed in which the formation of new synaptic contacts and the tuning of synaptic weights are mediated by quantum nonlocal interactions. The interaction between biologically important molecules in the brain can be the basis of the quantum metalanguage, which controls the behavior of humans and animals. The dynamics of...

Запутанность при неупругом рассеянии частиц тесно связана с невозможностью однозначного решения задачи рассеяния на основе законов сохранения. Как бы ни были сложны приборы, измеряющие состояние квантовых частиц, они неизбежно должны включать в себя процесс неупругого рассеяния. Только в таком случае прибор может получить информацию о состоянии час...

In this article, the evolution of viruses is analyzed in terms of their complexity. It is shown that the evolution of viruses is a partially directed process. The participation of viruses and mobile genetic elements in the evolution of other organisms by integration into the genome is also an a priori directed process. The high variability of genom...

A model of pulsed heat transfer for a liquid (isopropanol) with an initial pressure near and far from the critical one is constructed. The model explains the reason for the increase in thermal resistance when approaching the critical point. The reason for this effect is that the thermal diffusivity is low near the critical point, which leads to the...

- The evolution of viruses is a controlled process that occurs mainly in the host cell. The high variability of genomes (including antibodies), which differs by orders of magnitude for various viruses and their hosts, is not the result of a random process but the result of the action of a molecular genetic control system. In this sense, viruses, to...
Article
In this paper, a constructive definition of entanglement for nonidentical particles is given. It is shown that particles arising in the process of inelastic scattering are entangled with each other. This property is a consequence of the symmetry of fundamental interactions. Considering detectors of elementary particles, it was concluded that only i...

In this article, we present new data on the non-stationary heat transfer by partially-soluble binary liquids in the course of deep penetration into the region of their metastable and unstable (short-term superheated with respect to the diffusion spinodal) states. The object of research was an aqueous solution of polypropylene glycol-425 having the...
Article
The transport processes of substances in various plant tissues are extremely diverse. However, models aimed at elucidating the mechanisms of such processes are almost absent in the literature. A unified view of all these transport processes is necessary, considering the laws of statistical physics and thermodynamics. A model of active ion transport...

Two-player games have been sufficiently researched, but three-player games have a much greater wealth of solutions, in particular, nonstationary solutions. However, unsteady solutions of three-player games have not been studied in the literature. On the basis of numerical modeling, the dynamic behavior of a 2 × 2 × 2 game with three players is inve...

Many concepts in mathematics are not fully defined, and their properties are implicit, which leads to paradoxes. New foundations of mathematics were formulated based on the concept of innate programs of behavior and thinking. The basic axiom of mathematics is proposed, according to which any mathematical object has a physical carrier. This carrier...

Quantum entanglement can cause the efficiency of a heat engine to be greater than the efficiency of the Carnot cycle. However, this does not mean a violation of the second law of thermody-namics, since there is no local equilibrium for pure quantum states, and, in the absence of local equilibrium, thermodynamics cannot be formulated correctly. Von...

A definition of entanglement based on the overlap of wave functions of identical particles is proposed. A definition of a quantum system of particles related to their entanglement with each other and the environment is proposed. It is shown that in the general case, the uncertainty principle cannot be formulated for a system of quantum particles in...

If the isolated system of bosons and fermions was initially in a pure maximally entangled quantum state, then as a result of decoherence caused by the creation and annihilation of parti-cles, this system not only enters a mixed state but also achieves equilibrium. The time of such a transition does not depend on the size of the system but is determ...

A set (flock) of individuals moving in both two-dimensional and three-dimensional spatial representations with a constant modulus of speed, which tend to get to the center of the flock, is considered with possible delays and errors in determining the location of the center of the flock. The roles of noise in transient processes and delays in the es...

It has been shown that the contact melting rate for metals is determined by the fact that at least one of them has a quasi-liquid layer on the surface. As a result, the diffusion of metal atoms occurs in the liquid phase, and not in the solid phase, which determines the characteristic contact melting time (seconds and minutes).
