Abstract
Description
Subject of this letter is the dynamics of a chain obtained performing the continuous limit of a system of links and beads. In particular, the probability distribution of the relative position between two points of the chain averaged over a given interval of time is computed. The physical meaning of the obtained result is investigated in the limiting case of a stiff chain.
