In this workshop we will focus on modeling open and closed chains in a variety of biological and physical contexts, on the analysis of the topological, geometric, and other properties of the modeled chains. Examples include lattice models, wormlike chains, ideal knots, shape and scale of knotting, localization, constrained environments, and knot energies with applications to DNA, proteins, viral capsids and polymer melts. This event is part of the intensive research period "Knots and Applications".
