Globule transitions of a single homopolymer: a Wang-Landau Monte Carlo study
The temperature-independent Wang-Landau Monte Carlo approach is implemented for an off-lattice model of flexible homopolymers and applied to the coil-globule and solidification transitions based on chain sizes up to N=300. An intermediate transformation from low-density liquid globule to high-density liquid globule is suggested. A scheme for identifying polymer structures representative of particular temperatures in the course of the simulation is presented and applied to illustrate...[Show more]
