  • The behavior of chains of very many molecules is investigated by solving a restricted random walk problem on a cubic lattice in three dimensions and a square lattice in two dimensions. In the Monte Carlo calculation a large number of chains are generated at random, subject to the restrictions of no crossing or doubling back, to give the average extension of the chain 〈R2〉Av as a function of N, the number of links in the chain. A system of weights is used in order that all possible allowed… CONTINUE READING
