2014 The effect of topological constraints on the properties of ring polymers in solution are studied. When the rings are short and rigid, the effects can easily be understood and a simple result is given here. When the rings are long and flexible, the situation is complex and a more subtle analysis is needed. Fortunately recent mathematical studies concerning the linking numbers of two curves lead to a significant result. This information is used to argue that the topological constraints… CONTINUE READING
