Opis: The presence of several distinct minima in nearest-neighbor potentials in polymers makes it possible
to describe polymer conformations in terms of discrete isomeric states, naturally leading to spin
language. Using this general approach, a decade ago we have suggested the Hamiltonian formulation
for the Zimm and Bragg model of protein conformations [1,2]. Later we have augmented the model
by an oversimplified spin model for water, resulting in both cold and hot denaturations . We
construct the Statistical Mechanics for the model and get access to its Thermodynamics. Resulting
order parameter and specific heat expressions are successfully fit to available experimental data .
Thanks to solid and traceable theoretical foundations, the procedure provides better quality fits as
compared to the state-of-the-art two-state model, routinely used to process protein folding
