Abstract:

A theoreticalcomputational study of vibrational states of long chain polymeric DNA of nearly perfect translational symmetry but containing isolated damage, substitutions, or defects of other sorts. A new, closed form, computational algorithm is developed for such systems and applied to certain simple example cases. A computationally modest scheme for estimating relative intensities of Raman scattered lines is developed and applied to simple molecules, preparatory to application to DNA polymer.
