Ein Extrem sind quantenmechanische Suchalgorithmen, wie sie u.U. für Quantencomputer verwandt werden können. Auf der anderen Seite steht der hocheffiziente Energietransport bei der Photosynthese, bei dem momentan debattiert wird, in wie weit kohärente Dynamik verantwortlich für die hohe Effizienz ist. Beide Prozesse lassen sic
