A method based on a selfconsistent solution of a quantum-mechanical system with temperature fluctuations described by Langevin equations is developed to calculate the charge carrier mobility in DNA. To model the charge transfer in DNA, a combined Holstein – SSH Hamiltonian is considered. As an example the hole mobility is calculated at room temperature for synthetic poly (G)/poly (C) duplex with regard to main structural fluctuations.
