We consider a simple model for the fluctuating hydrodynamics of a flexible polymer in dilute solution, demonstrating geometric er godicity for a pair of particles that interact with each other through a nonline ar spring potential while being advected by a stochastic Stokes fluid veloci ty field. This is a generalization of previous models which have used… CONTINUE READING
