ABSTRACT
A simple scaling law is proposed for the dependence of the number of contacts on the radius of gyration of a self-avoiding walk (SAW). We test our proposal on SAWs generated by a Monte Carlo simulation on square and cubic lattices. The distribution of the number of contacts is then combined with the distribution of configurations previously derived to deduce the free energy of a polymer chain for low values of the interaction parameter χ. As compared to the free energy of Flory, the new expression takes a much better account of the spatial correlations between distant monomers of the chain.

    We study behaviors of a compact dimension and the T-duality, in the presence of the wrapped closed bosonic strings. When the closed strings interact and form another system of strings, the radius of compactification increases. This modifies the T-duality, which we call it as T-duality-like. Some...

    We show that the technique of Brezin et al. for constructing nonlocal conserved currents for 2-dimensional models can be extended to certain special models in (2 + 1) dimensions. We construct an infinite number of these currents for the modified chiral model in (2 + 1) dimensions. We obtain...

    A methodology is developed to obtain the optimal dimensions of a crankrocker mechanism as a function of transmission angle and link length ratio. The combined objective function is established with transmission angle and link length ratio as design variables. The optimized link lengths of the...

    A conformal block is a function of many variables, usually represented as a formal series with coefficients that are certain matrix elements in the chiral (i.e., Virasoro) algebra. A nonperturbative conformal block is a multivalued function defined globally over the space of dimensions and has...
