Abstract

We present the exact solution of a Brownian inchworm model of a self-propelled elastic dimer which has recently been proposed, in Kumar et al 2008 Phys. Rev. E 77 020102(R), as a unifying model for the propulsion mechanisms of DNA helicase, polar rods on a vibrated surface, crawling keratocytes, and Myosin VI.
