I cannot help a little shame
That I missed most, even at eye's level, till
The leaves blew off and made the seeing no game.
"Birds' Nests" by Edward Thomas
As I got out of the sledge, I gave him a few coppers over his fare. He

January frost.
"Masha" by Ivan Turgenev

Voyaging clockwise off the symboled harbour,
Finding the water final,
On the consumptives' terrace taking their two farewells,
Sail on the level, the departing adventure,
To the sea-blown arrival.
"I, In My Intricate Image" by Dylan Thomas

We propose a polymer model that can explain this levelling-off by means of random looping.

None of these models presented so far is able to explain the levelling-off observed in the recent study.
A Random Loop Model for Long Polymers
Therefore loops on all scales are needed to obtain the levelling-off observed in experiment.
A Random Loop Model for Long Polymers
At short contour lengths the mean square displacement grows similar to a random walk, but soon a levelling-off can be observed due to the attractive longrange interactions which is fairly ∼ O(1).
A Random Loop Model for Long Polymers
Note that the probabilities P are chosen very small, meaning that a few loops suffice to obtain this levelling-off.
A Random Loop Model for Long Polymers
In comparison with the case of average attraction (P = 1, κ = 1, ˆκ = P ) the levelling-off is much less pronounced.
A Random Loop Model for Long Polymers
In agreement with the experimental findings we propose the existence of loops to be responsible for this levelling-off.
