Statistical mechanics of semiflexible ribbon polymers.

Abstract:

The statistical mechanics of a ribbon polymer made up of two semiflexible chains is studied using both analytical techniques and simulation. The system is found to have a crossover transition at some finite temperature, from one type of short-range order to a fundamentally different sort of short-range order. In the high temperature regime, the two-point correlation functions of the object are identical to wormlike chains, while in the low temperature regime they are different due to a twist ...
