An elastic lattice model for tightly double-folded ring polymers shows three different universality classes: ideal double-folded rings without excluded volume interactions, self-avoiding double-folded rings, and double-folded rings in the melt state. The dynamics is in excellent agreement with a recent scaling theory.

The paper “Monte Carlo simulation of a lattice model for the dynamics of randomly branching double-folded ring polymers” presents the results of a collaboration between our group and group of Prof. Ralf Everaers in ENS Lyon, where Elham Ghobadipour has joint to further her educations as a PhD candidate.
