Macroscopic Quantum Tunneling


In this work, a mechanism of macroscopic quantum tunneling is studied, which shows this sort of phenomena may exist even in the bio-field system. The relevant Davydov solitons fields and the Feynman digraph have been constructed based on the nonlinear Green function theory, which allows one to get a synchronous resonance model to explain the macroscopic quantum tunneling, such as in double potential wells system. Furthermore, the functional of quantum information density can also be applied to drive the object into a type of soliton structure of quantum information density, which allows the system to possess property of the macroscopic quantum tunneling.
