Abstract:

A 7090 IBM digital computer program was developed to verify certain results and contribute to the excluded volume problem. The distribution of the mean square length of all possible walks of n steps was computed for walks of up to and including sixteen steps in the two dimensional, 90 degrees, three-choice lattice. The values of u sub n, non-intersecting closed walks of n steps, were also computed and the computed values of nonintersecting walks of n steps and u sub n agree perfectly with the values given by Fisher and Sykes Phys. Rev. 1445-48,1959. Author
