  author={Mark J Bowick and Angelo Cacciuto and Gudmar Thorleifsson and Alex Travesset},
We present an analysis of extensive large-scale Monte Carlo simulations of self-avoiding fixed-connectivity membranes for sizes (number of faces) ranging from 512 to 17672 (triangular) plaquettes. Selfavoidance is implemented via impenetrable plaquettes. We simulate the impenetrable plaquette model in both three and four bulk dimensions. In both cases we… CONTINUE READING
