Abstract

A compact formula and efficient algorithm for calculating the metric pseudo-potential forces required in simulations of chains with constrained bond lengths to mimic the behavior of infinitely stiff bead-spring chains are presented. Both are significantly simpler than the algorithms of Grassia and Hinch, and yield efficient code.
