1307.7366 (T. E. Raptis et al.)

Understanding coil-to-globule transition of polymers with the aid of a
novel cluster analysis technique

T. E. Raptis, Vasilios E. Raptis
In this note, a novel cluster analysis algorithm recently applied in simple Molecular Dynamics simulations of systems that tend to phase separate, was employed in the study of polymer coil to globule transition via single chain Monte Carlo simulations. The method has been described in detail in http://arxiv.org/abs/1306.3460. Findings tend to favour a two-stage model of collapse kinetics, although the existence of an intermediate fuzzy phase is also observed, when looking at the details of cluster formation along the backbone chain.
