The binding polynomial and decoupled proteins
The talk will present the concept of a protein molecule and its binding polynomial, and present the problem of decoupling molecules in terms of solving certain systems of polynomial equations. We present some calculations of the mixed volumes associated, using diverse methods, and present a conjecture on the number of solutions (which represent the number of "decoupled" molecules).
