    Processes on different length scales affect the dynamics of chain molecules. In this work, we focus on structures on the scale of a monomer and investigate polyolefins, i.e., hydrocarbon chains with different small-scale architectures. We present an exact enumeration scheme for the simulation of...

    An exact field theory is presented to describe a system of self-avoiding lattice polymer chains with arbitrary regularly branched architecture. Equivalently, the chains can be viewed as linear and as composed of structural units (monomers) having a chosen shape and size and therefore each...

    Linear flexible polymers both at low and high concentrations surrounding a single hard sphere are simulated using the cooperative motion algorithm on the face-centered cubic lattice. The excluded-volume condition between different monomers is taken into account and the size ratio q = R/R[sub g]...

    A lattice model is used to study mutations and compacting effects on protein folding rates and folding temperature. In the context of protein evolution, we address the question regarding the best scenario for a polypeptide chain to fold: either a fast nonspecific collapse followed by a slow...

    We extend the exact solutions of the Di Marzio-Rubin matrix method for the thermodynamic properties, including chain density, of a linear polymer molecule confined to walk on a lattice of finite size. Our extensions enable (a) the use of higher dimensions (explicit 2D and 3D lattices), (b)...

    A domain of locations of a proton in the perovskite structure is determined by studying the local structure and a hard sphere point charge model. Two intra- and one inter-octahedron processes with different energy barriers of ⟨ E1⟩, ⟨ E2⟩, and ⟨ E3⟩ have been...

    Using a lattice-based Monte Carlo code for simulating self-avoiding flexible polymers in three dimensions in the absence of explicit hydrodynamics, we study their Rouse modes. For self-avoiding polymers, the Rouse modes are not expected to be statistically independent; nevertheless, we...

    We investigate the dynamics of polymer translocation through a nanopore using two-dimensional Langevin dynamics simulations. In the absence of an external driving force, we consider a polymer which is initially placed in the middle of the pore and study the escape time Ï„e required for the...

    The paper examines a classical system in one degree of freedom: a particle (monomer) interacting with a periodic lattice of independent, separated oscillators. The monomer can interact with oscillators via a short-range attractive potential force. The periodic lattice of oscillators may absorb...
