"Calculation of the density of states and the thermal properties of polymer
chains and stars on a lattice by the Monte Carlo method with the use of
the WangLandau algorithm" Silantyeva I.A., VorontsovVelyaminov P.N. 
The Monte Carlo method with the use of the WangLandau algorithm is applied to study the lattice models of free polymer chains and 6arm polymer stars. The ratio of selfavoiding walks among semiphantom walks for the chains of length N ≤ 300 and the stars with the total number N ≤ 720 of segments is determined. The distribution over the number of monomers' contacts for chains and stars with the number N = 30,72,120 of segments is obtained. Based on this distribution, the temperature dependences are found for the internal energy, the heat capacity, and the entropy. Keywords: polymer star, WangLandau algorithm
