Abstract

Polymers are simulated with a bead-spring model, with a short-ranged repulsive interaction between the beads. For a large number $N$ of beads, the mean end-to-end length, $\left\langle\vec{r}_e^2(N)\right\rangle$ scales as $N^{2\nu}$, For a finite number beads, the range of our simulations, there are corrections to this scaling law of the form
