Re: What is the Biggest Non-Repeating Molecule?

I am not sure if I even have a consistent definition. Edit: The definition I was intending to use was how many bits it takes to represent the molecule - I do not know how to make this exact except for sufficiently large repeating molecules. This should be roughly equal to the length of the shortest ...

Re: What is the Biggest Non-Repeating Molecule?

My use of "information" was only dealing with the structure of the molecule - that is, the bonds between atoms - not including position/momentum, flexing, etc. Thus, I believe I would measure a monatomic gas as having 0 bits/atom (plus a header saying that all molecules are atoms). Alterna...

Re: What is the Biggest Non-Repeating Molecule?

As other people have mentioned, non-repeating isn't well defined yet; nevertheless, the hydrocarbon mentioned in my last post is not a carbon chain. I propose that a metric you want is information per unit mass or information per atom. Although this molecule has multiple (CH3-)s and probably many (C...

I agree that DNA has more information; I disagree that it can't be compressed well. EDIT: Now I think I disagree - the difference is that DNA/RNA/proteins tend to be larger.
