Monte-carlo method for simulations of ring polymers in the melt.

Abstract

A detailed analysis of the efficiency of a Monte-Carlo (MC) method employing non-local moves for simple lattice ring polymers is presented. While the introduction of kink-translocation moves for linear chains results in the expected speedup by a factor of the order of the number of sites, this is significantly reduced for a melt of rings.
