Hot Article: New algorithm for describing polymers in 3D spheres

The theory behind diblock-copolymer films grafted on spherical objects is investigated. An efficient numerical self-consistent field theory (SCFT) algorithm, combining spherical harmonics and the Crank-Nicolsen method, was developed. This algorithm could potentially be used for a wide range of spherical systems.
