Abstract

An improved chain extension algorithm was applied to study branched polymer combs. The polymer chains were simulated using the enhanced lattice enrichment algorithm. The value of critical exponents related to configuration number for the combs was determined. Results for an H-shaped polymer was in agreement with simulations and theoretical prediction formula.
