Glassiness and Heterogeneous Dynamics in Dense Solutions of Ring Polymers Unknotted and unlinked ring polymers in the melt behave very differently than their linear counterparts. The reason behind this difference lies in the closed topology of the rings and on the global topological invariance of the system. In fact, crumpled rings [...]
