Motivated by an investigation of ground state properties of randomly charged polymers, we discuss the size distribution of the largest Q–segments (segments with total charge Q) in such N–mers. Upon mapping the charge sequence to one–dimensional random walks (RWs), this corresponds to finding the probability for the largest segment with total displacement Q… (More)
