Section 4. Physical Aspects In The Evolution Of The Membrane

Abstract

The formation of a biological molecular aggregate such as a membrane, is discussed as a collective process emerging from the dispersive dynamics arising from coherent quantum electrodynamics. The essential role of liquid water is stressed.
