Knotted polymers and filaments

Abstract:

The behaviour of knotted polymers and non-Brownian knotted filaments is investigated using bead-spring models, simulated using three different dynamical methods. We focus on knotted polymers under confinement, and on the dynamics of knotted polymers and filaments.

Langevin Dynamics is applied to study polymers confined in a slit. We find that, for relatively wide slits, knots decrease the force exerted by the polymer on the walls, whilst for narrower slits, they increase it. We interpre...
