Abstract

Abstract A new type of periodic function, similar to the Gaussian distribution function, has been designed to meet the need for mathematical descriptions of shape and form in science, and of structures other than translational. The Ninham long-range hydrophobic interactions are given a structural description of finite periodicity, which gives the background for a dynamic proposal: these forces operate over considerable distances via proton-phonon interactions due to vibrations in an ordered water film with a structure resembling that of ice.
