2014 saw graduations of two PhD students Christian M Rohwer, with a study on entanglements in polymers J Mohau Mateyisi, with a study on diffusion in coupled single-file pores and an MSc student Sthembiso R Gumede, with a study of polymer translocation There is also an article on December 2014 PhDs in the Physics Department at Stellenbosch… Read More »
Our recent paper (See post here; CM Rohwer, KK Müller-Nedebock “Operator Formalism for Topology-Conserving Crossing Dynamics in Planar Knot Diagrams”, Journal of Statistical Physics 159, 120-157 (2015), http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s10955-014-1161-1) introduces a dynamical perspective to the venerable polymer physics problem of conserving the state of entanglement in polymer loops. To understand what this means we show the example of a single… Read More »
