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.
