Molecular self-assembly commonly underlies various biologic macromolecular architectures. We scientists have long pursued a way to emulate and acquire molecular self-assembly strategy in our hands, however, the road toward the goal is still steep and winding. As the first logical step, in-depth understanding of self-assembly mechanism is essential. In this project, I attempt to describe the mechanism in a mathematical way. The new theory built from scratch will aid and accelerate the field of molecular self-assembly as a general system design strategy.
