[Publisher-supplied data] Propelled by the success of the sequencing of the human and many related genomes, molecular and cellular biology has delivered significant scientific breakthroughs. Mathematics (broadly defined) continues to play a major role in this effort, helping to discover the secrets of life by working collaboratively with bench biologists, chemists and physicists. Because of its outstanding record of interdisciplinary research and training, the IMA was an ideal venue for the 2007-2008 IMA thematic year on Mathematics of Molecular and Cellular Biology. The kickoff event for this thematic year was a tutorial on Mathematics of Nucleic Acids, followed by the workshop Mathematics of Molecular and Cellular Biology, held September 15--21 at the IMA. This volume is dedicated to the memory of Nicholas R. Cozzarelli, a dynamic leader who fostered research and training at the interface between mathematics and molecular biology. It contains a personal remembrance of Nick Cozzarelli, plus 15 papers contributed by workshop speakers. The papers give an overview of state-of-the-art mathematical approaches to the understanding of DNA structure and function, and the interaction of DNA with proteins that mediate vital life processes

On Random Knots by Yuanan Diao ( )
1 edition published in 1994 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In this paper, we consider knotting of Gaussian random polygons in 3-space. A Gaussian random polygon is a piecewise linear circle with n edges in which the length of the edges follows a Gaussian distribution. We prove a continuum version of Kesten's Pattern Theorem for these polygons, and use this to prove that the probability that a Gaussian random polygon of n edges in 3-space is knotted tends to one exponentially rapidly as n tends to infinity. We study the properties of Gaussian random knots, and prove that the entanglement complexity of Gaussian random knots gets arbitrarily large as n tends to infinity. We also prove that almost all Gaussian random knots are chiral
