Abstract

We present an extensive molecular‐dynamics simulation for a bead spring model of a melt of linear polymers. The number of monomersN covers the range from N=5 to N=400. Since the entanglement length N e is found to be approximately 35, our chains cover the crossover from the nonentangled to the entangled regime. The Rouse model provides an excellent description for short chains N
