Figure 4.

Correlation time τrot of the orientation of the end-to-end vector vs. polymer stiffness. When the spring constant of the next neighbour springs, k2N, was increased the polymer became more extended and, consequently, rotated slower. The filled symbols are from simulations without HI while the open symbols give the results with HI for polymers of the respective bead number N.
