Abstract: We consider a system that models the shape of a growing polymer. Our basic problem concerns the asymptotic behavior of Xt, the location of the end of the polymer at time t. We obtain bounds on Xt in the (physically uninteresting) case that d=1 and the interaction function f(x)≥0. If, in addition, f(x) behaves for large x like Cxβ with β<1 we obtain a strong law that gives the exact growth rate. © 1992 SpringerVerlag.
