    There is ample experimental evidence for the existence of several crystalline phases of C[sub 4]F[sub 8], although they still have been not clearly identified. In this paper we report a series of molecular dynamics (MD) simulations using a partially flexible molecular model, which takes into...

    We investigate the effect of roughness degree of a protein surface on the solvent diffusion near the surface by carrying out the molecular dynamics simulations. As expected, the solvent molecules experience the larger frictional drag on a more corrugated protein surface. However, the roughness...

    The disordering mechanisms which characterize the pretransitional states of a polymethylene chain inserted in a host material are studied with statistical mechanics. While the intramolecular conformational energy of the chain is chosen according to Flory’s theory, the interaction with the...
