     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 

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
9) Computer simulation of sol-gel transition.
10) Computer simulation of polymer dynamics.
11) Growth of DLA fractals.

13. Postdoctoral fellowships:

group of Prof.Dr.K.Binder, Institut fuer Physik, Universitaet
