In order to improve our ability to simulate the complex behavior of polymers, we introduce dynamical models in the class of Cellular Automata (CA). Space partitioning methods enable us to overcome fundamental obstacles to large scale simulation of connected chains with excluded volume by parallel processing computers. A highly efficient, two-space algorithm is devised and tested on both Cellular Automata Machines (CAMs) and serial computers. Preliminary results on the static and dynamic properties of polymers in two dimensions are reported.doi:10.1557/proc-248-483 fatcat:56jtf66swrem3ohdaycnlel2zu
