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.

    The conformational complexity of chain-like macromolecules such as proteins and other linear polymers is much larger than that of point-like atoms and molecules. Unlike particles, chains can bend, twist, and even become knotted. Thus chains might also display a much richer phase structure....
