The probability that a random walk or polygon in the 3-space or in the simple cubic lattice contains a small knot, an ephemeral knot, or a slipknot goes to one as the length goes to infinity. The probability that a polygon or walk contains a " global " knot also goes to one as the length goes to infinity. What immerges is a highly complex picture of the… (More)

We propose a method to estimate N(e), the entanglement length, that incorporates both local and global topological characteristics of chains in a melt under equilibrium conditions. This estimate uses the writhe of the chains, the writhe of the primitive paths, and the number of kinks in the chains in a melt. An advantage of this method is that it works for… (More)

Momentary configurations of long polymers at thermal equilibrium usually deviate from spherical symmetry and can be better described, on average, by a prolate ellipsoid. The as-phericity and nature of asphericity (or prolateness) that describe these momentary ellipsoidal shapes of a polymer are determined by specific expressions involving the three… (More)
