In existographies, Bernhard Altaner (c.29- AE) (c.1984- ACM) (LH:3) is a German physicist, thermodynamicist, and origin of life researcher, noted for []

Overview

Altaner’s 2015 diagram of kinesin, at left, a walking molecule type of motor protein, its forwarding walking motion diagrammed at right in terms of ATP hydrolysis reaction mechanism.

In 2015, Altaner, in his “Fluctuating Currents in Stochastic Thermodynamics. II. Energy Conversion and Nonequilibrium Response in Kinesin Models”, co-authored with: Artur Wachtel and Jurgen Vollmer, attempted to model kinesin as a train or steam engine that was driven by ATP.[1]

AEON | Board game

In 2021, Altaner, and his associates made a print-and-play board game called AEON Emergence of Life, with yellow "free energy" resource cubes.

Education

In 2010, Altaner completed a BS or MS degree, with a thesis on “Non-linear Response of a Colloidal Particle in a Dense Suspension Under Flow” at University of Konstanz, Germany. In 2014, Altaner completed his PhD with a dissertation on “Foundations of Stochastic Thermodynamics: Entropy, Dissipation, and Information Models of Small Systems”.[2] Presently, Altaner is associated with the Gerland Group at Technical University of Munich, which focuses on the "physics of complex biosystems".[3]

Research interests

Altaner's research interests are: thermodynamics, information theory, statistical mechanics, evolution, origin of life.[4]
