abstract
We present a new technique for the prediction of the free energy of biomolecules, based on techniques in quantum field theory. The technique is based on the calculation of an effective potential, approximating the free energy. The minimum of this potential corresponds with the equilibrium position of the molecule. The technique is them applied to some actual physical systems.
