Epilogue and Future Perspectives

  • L. Ridgway Scott
  • Ariel Fernández
Part of the Biological and Medical Physics, Biomedical Engineering book series (BIOMEDICAL)


As we stated at the beginning, this book is intended to initiate a new approach to protein biophysics, not to summarize the main results of a mature field. This chapter is in the position where one would expect an Epilogue. Instead we offer a prologue outlining where research might go in the future. We begin by summarizing key aspects of the book to provide a succinct background for what we propose for the future. We then suggest some new directions that may, or may not, be succeptible to mathematical understanding.
