The forest sped its brook.

In science:

One may argue that in the SCF model, where the firstorder Markov approximation was used in the chain statistics, a lower number of beads along the chain should be chosen in order to correctly compare to the MC simulations.

In such DNA, a chain “monomer” m, which corresponds to a bead in a freely jointed chain, represents one persistence length ℓp .

This single variable approximation to the multi-bead dynamics is the one that has been used to analyze the fluorescence quenching experiments.
Non-Gaussian dynamics from a simulation of a short peptide: Loop closure rates and effective diffusion coefficients
The accuracy of the single variable approximation to the multi-bead quenching time does not seem essential to the discrepancy between calculated and measured rates either.
Non-Gaussian dynamics from a simulation of a short peptide: Loop closure rates and effective diffusion coefficients
However, the bounds calculated from the same many-bead polymer model are useful since the exact τ from the model is generally unknown. A chain with Gaussian dynamics is chosen in this paper to define the model and associated parameters that are compared with the simulated contact time and end-to-end dynamics.
Non-Gaussian dynamics from a simulation of a short peptide: Loop closure rates and effective diffusion coefficients
It should be noted that Gaussian dynamics and the reduction of a multi-bead model to a single variable model are separate issues.
Non-Gaussian dynamics from a simulation of a short peptide: Loop closure rates and effective diffusion coefficients
The variational bounds τSSS ≤ τ ≤ τWF is a relationship between the mean contact time of a single variable model (with a specific Deff ) to the corresponding multi-bead model.
Non-Gaussian dynamics from a simulation of a short peptide: Loop closure rates and effective diffusion coefficients
It seems that a microscopic interpretation of the slow endto-end distance relaxation would require a multi-bead description, perhaps leading to an effective single variable description which is easier to handle analytically.

Fig. 4 shows experimental data for ¯δ(0) versus (sF r/A)1/4 for experimental data for 90 experiments comprising steel balls, glass beads and sand of different sizes in cylinders of different sizes and for different rotational speeds.
