”FDT” Violation in Proteins


Abstract Bio-molecules and proteins are building blocks of life as is known, and understanding

their dynamics and functions are necessary to better understand life and improve its

quality. While ergodicity and fluctuation dissipation theorem (FDT) are fundamental

and crucial concepts regarding study of dynamics of systems in equilibrium, biological

function is not possible in equilibrium.

In this work, dynamical and orientational structural crossovers in low-temperature

glycerol are investigated. A sudden and notable increase in the orientational Kirk-

wood factor and the dielectric constant is observed, which appears in the same range

of temperatures that dynamic crossover of translational and rotational dynamics oc-

cur.
