These notes are devoted to the statistical mechanics of directed polymers interacting with one-dimensional spatial defects. We are interested in particular in the situation where frozen disorder is present. These polymer models undergo a localization/delocalization transition. There is a large (bio)-physics literature on the subject since these systems describe, for instance, the statistics of thermally created loops in DNA double strands and the interaction between (1 + 1)-dimensional… CONTINUE READING
