The density crossover scaling of various thermodynamic properties of solutions and melts of self-avoiding and highly flexible polymer chains without chain intersections confined to strictly two dimensions is investigated by means of molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo simulations of a standard coarse-grained bead-spring model. In the semidilute regime we(More)
Polymer melts without topological constraints are believed to be described by the Rouse model [1], i.e. the random forces from the bath acting on the center-of-mass (CM) r N (t) of a reference chain of length N are supposed to be uncorrelated. For the corresponding CM mean-square displacement (MSD) h N (t) this implies h N (t) ≡ (r N (t) − r N (0)) 2 = 2dD(More)
