In the last few years, hopes have emerged that simple concepts could perhaps explain the extremely complicated biomolecular processes which are known to a greater and greater accuracy thanks to the extraordinary progress of biology. In parallel, powerful methods in physics, especially nonlinearity and cooperative effects, have been developed. They apply especially to biological phenomena and can explain coherent excitations with remarkable properties. This book provides a pedagogical introduction to the theory of nonlinear excitations and solitons in a biological environment, and also to the structure and function of biomolecules as well as energy and charge transport in biophysics.A useful concept to classify the mechanisms of these light reactions is that of following a time scale for the primary processes. ... carotenoids, and other pigments 10-15 sec photophysical processes, internal conversions, vibrational relaxations 10-13 sec energy conduction in excited antenna complexes 10-12-10 -10 ...
