Geometrical Frustration in Interacting Self-Avoiding Walk Models of Polymers in Dilute Solution

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

We look at the effects of geometric frustration in two-dimensional interacting self-avoiding walk models. Models in which these effects are present do not behave in the same way as the standard interacting self-avoiding walk model where an attractive interaction energy is included between non-consecutive, nearest-neighbour visited sites on the lattice. We present, in particular, the different numerical methods we have used to study these models, as well as some of the main results found for a number of different models.
