Gaussian approximation for finitely extensible bead-spring chains with hydrodynamic interaction

Preprint English OPEN
Prabhakar, R.; Prakash, J. Ravi;

The Gaussian Approximation, proposed originally by Ottinger [J. Chem. Phys., 90 (1) : 463-473, 1989] to account for the influence of fluctuations in hydrodynamic interactions in Rouse chains, is adapted here to derive a new mean-field approximation for the FENE spring f... View more
