Topologically driven swelling of a polymer loop



Topologically driven swelling of a polymer loop



Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America 101(37): 13431-5



Numerical studies of the average size of trivially knotted polymer loops with no excluded volume were undertaken. Topology was identified by Alexander and Vassiliev degree 2 invariants. Probability of a trivial knot, average gyration radius, and probability density distributions as functions of gyration radius were generated for loops of up to N = 3,000 segments.
