Using the scanning and the hypothetical scanning methods we study a system of many chains with excluded volume contained in a “box” on a square lattice. With these methods the sampling probability P of a configuration can be calculated and therefore the entropy S is known (S ∼ ln P) without the need to resort to thermodynamic integration. Thus, the pressure and the chemical potential can be calculated with high accuracy directly from the entropy using standard thermodynamic relations. The… CONTINUE READING
