Abstract

We study the highly-concerted motion of ions in a narrow biological ion channel (KcsA) by considering the notion of a quasiparticle, with specific focus on the transition process. Namely, we show that the ion entering or exiting the channel is correlated with the position of the quasiparticle. This result is of importance in the rate theories of ion conduction through narrow channels and artificial nanopores.
