    The problem of demixing in the Asakura-Oosawa colloid-polymer model is considered. The critical constants are computed using truncated virial expansions up to fifth order. While the exact analytical results for the second and third virial coefficients are known for any size ratio, analytical...

    The behavior of a polymer chain confined between parallel plates a distance D apart is studied by Monte Carlo calculations of self-avoiding walks for up to 100 steps on the tetrahedral lattice. Scaling predictions of Daoud and de Gennes are tested using the data obtained; they are consistent...

    Monte Carlo simulations have been performed on a diamond lattice model of semiflexible polymers for a range of flexibilities and a range of chain lengths from 50 to 800 segments. The model includes both repulsive (excluded volume) and attractive segment–segment interactions. It is shown...

    Using a polymeric model, we study via Monte Carlo simulation the structure and stability of an amphiphilic bilayer against pore formation. The simulations yield the absorption isotherm of the amphiphile in solution. At a critical micelle concentration around 1.5×10-3, a bilayer forms, and...
