PhD Thesis: "Some questions of statistical physics of mesophases in the systems of stiff-chain and amphyphylic macromolecules". 13.12.1990, Physics Department, Moscow State University. The PhD Thesis of Dr.Ivanov is devoted to the theoretical study of the following problems: (i) theory of elastic light scattering from the isotropic solutions of stiff-chain macromo- cules close to the point of liquid-crystalline transition; (ii) theory of high elasticity of polymeric networks (with the possibility of nematic ordering) consisting of stiff-chain subchains with the persistent mechanism of flexibility and the theory of elasticity of polymeric fibers; (iii) the theory of solutions of long polymer chains in the three-component systems water-oil-surfactant. 12. Research interests: I started with the computer simulations of polymer systems in 1993. I use the coarse-grained models of different polymeric systems, and I am interested in the investigation of the global macroscopical properties of such systems on large length and time scales (formation of structures, phase transitions etc.). Now I am involved in the following projects: 1) Monte Carlo simulations of conformation-dependent sequence design of AB-copolymers. The idea is to investigate the influence of primary sequence of A and B monomeric units on the structural properties of a model copolymer chain. Apart from regular and random primary sequences also a specially designed ones are investigated. The basic principles of a new recently proposed design scheme are as follows. Some particular conformation of a homopolymer chain is taken (globular conformation, for example, or a conformation of the chain adsorbed on some surface) and the monomeric units are divided in two groups (A and B links) depending on the position of each particular monomeric unit inside this spatial conformation. 2) Monte Carlo simulations by means of "bond fluctuation algorithm" of collapse transition in a single polymer chain with different degrees of stiffness. This is a part of the joint project with the group of Prof.Dr.K.Binder in Mainz (Germany). The goal is to find out the diagram of state for a single semiflexible macromolecule of finite length. Particular interest is devoted to the formation of toroidal structure. 3) Monte Carlo computer simulation of isotropic-nematic transition in solutions of semiflexible macromolecules (statics and kinetics). This is another part of collaboration with the group of Prof.K.Binder. 4) Computer simulation of adsorption of semiflexible chains and bottle-brushes (comb-like chains) at surfaces. 5) Computer simulation of charged dendrimers. 6) Computer simulation of complex formation of linear polyelectrolytes with amphiphilic molecules at charged patterned surfaces. 7) Computer simulation of complex formations in the systems of AB-copolymers and colloidal particles. 8) Computer simulations of simple diffusional models which mimics some properties of glass transition in real systems. 9) Computer simulation of sol-gel transition. 10) Computer simulation of polymer dynamics. 11) Growth of DLA fractals. 13.
