JHU 580.429 SB3HW13: Stochastic dynamics, fluctuation-dissipation, stability. 1. Stochastic protein dynamics. Consider a stochastic system in which particular protein in a cell has copy number n . Starting in state n , the transition rate for n n + 1 is β and the transition rate for n n - 1 is α n . The steady-state probability that the system is in state n is P n . (a) Use detailed balance to obtain the steady-state relationship between P n and P n + 1 , and then derive a closed form expression for the probability distribution P n . (b) Provide a closed form expression for the generating function ˜ P ( φ ) = n = 0 e - φ n P n ; ex- press the mean h n i and the variance h n 2 i - h n i 2 in terms of derivatives of ˜ P ( φ ) ; and evaluate the mean and variance in terms of model parameters. (c) Suppose you want to run a stochastic simulation. Starting in state n , what states can be reached? Define the random variable τ as the waiting time before the first transition. What is the mean time h τ i for this first transition? What is the probability distribution p ( τ ) for the first transition?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
