Numerical treatment of Brownian Molecular Motors or "I beat you till you talk!"

Brownian Molecular Motors are crucial for cell motility, muscle contraction or any other mechanical task carried out by proteins. After a short introduction to protein motors, I will talk about a numerical appraoch I worked on during the last months, which should enable us to deduct properties for a broad range of protein motors. A special focus should lie on the calculation of the eigenvalue spectrum, which gives insight to motors' stability.
