    Abstract

    Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of a polyethylene melt were performed to investigate the validity of the Rouse model predictions for a comprehensive set of correlation functions. It was found that the chains behave like Rouse theory predicts, but only on length scales larger than the segment length.
