Brownian dynamics algorithm for bead-rod semiflexible chain with anisotropic friction.

A model of semiflexible bead-rod chain with anisotropic friction can mimic closely the hydrodynamics of a slender filament. We present an efficient algorithm for Brownian dynamics simulations of this model with configuration dependent anisotropic bead friction coefficients. The algorithm is an extension of that given previously for the case of configuration… CONTINUE READING
