Abstract

The vibrational dynamics of protein folding is analyzed in the framework of Tsallis statistics. We employ exact expressions for classical harmonic oscillators by considering the unnormalized constraints. As q -> 1, we show that these approximations agree with the result of Gaussian network model.
