ABSTRACT
Focuses on the mean squared radius of gyration of a short Rouse model polymer determined as a function of the number of imposed contacts. Modeling of the contacts by extra harmonic potentials between the specified monomers; Green's function method used to follow the effects of sequential addition of contacts; Averaging over random sequences of contacts.
