Single homopolymers in the relative density representation

H. L. Frisch, J. K. Percus

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An exact full analysis of an alternative density functional theory of a single freely jointed polymer chain is presented. In particular, a chain located in a spherical core, or on the outside of a spherical surface or plane surface is discussed. Related interactions by a perturbative mean field technique are further characterized.
