In a very long Gaussian polymer on time scales shorter than the maximal relaxation time, the mean squared distance traveled by a tagged monomer grows as approximately t(1/2) . We analyze such subdiffusive behavior in the presence of one or two absorbing boundaries and demonstrate the differences between this process and the subdiffusion described by the… CONTINUE READING
