Computer simulations and computational diagnostics are used to study a Monte Carlo Brownian walker moving through a glass of immobile force centers. Clear evidence for distinct trapping, hopping, and hindered-diffusive regimes is seen in the mean-square displacement and the probability...

While the prediction of hydrodynamic properties of rigid particles is nowadays feasible using simple and efficient computer programs, the calculation of such properties and, in general, the dynamic behavior of flexible macromolecules has not reached a similar situation. Although the theories are...

The equilibrium pressure in a crystal composed of hard spheres or disks may be determined from the statistical geometry of a single isolated monocavity (one large enough for addition of only one particle). Additional knowledge of the equilibrium concentration of monocavities permits evaluation...
