Equilibrium configurations of a thin elastic rod with self-contacts.
Proceedings in Applied Mathematics and Mechanics
137 - 138.
Spatial equilibria of a closed thin isotropic elastic rod are considered. The thin elastic rod is a classical model for the large-scale structure of relatively long DNA molecules. Particular attention is paid to the shapes with self-contacts which are assembled from the elementary loops.
