On the localization-delocalization critical line for the random copolymer

Bolthausen, E (Universität Zürich)
Monday 17 September 2012, 15:00-15:40

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


The random copolymer is a model for a long polymer chain at an interface of two liquids, say oil and water. The nodes of the polymer chain are either water repellent or oil repellent, placed in a random way or with random strengths. The model exhibits a phase transition between a localized phase and a delocalized phase. We present some new results on the phase separation line.
