A new interpolation formula for semiflexible polymers
A. Rosa, T. X. Hoang, D. Marenduzzo and A. Maritan
A new formula for the force vs. extension relation is derived from the discrete version of the so-called Worm-like chain model. This
formula correctly fits some recent experimental data on polymer stretching. Moreover, we have compared our formula with a Monte Carlo
simulation of a semiflexible polymer.
