DYNAMICS OF A RING POLYMER IN A GEL.
PHYS REV LETT
1263 - 1266.
We present a simple scaling theory of the dynamics of a ring polymer in a gel. In the absence of excluded volume interactions, we predict that the translational diffusion coefficient D varies with the molecular weight M as D approximately M-2 and the longest relaxation time T scales as T approximately M5/2. The results of numerical simulations support these findings.
