Abstract
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.
