**Hydrodynamic effects: polymers modelled by small world networks** — •Mircea Galiceanu and Alexander Blumen — Theoretische Polymerphysik, Universität Freiburg, Hermann-Herder-Str. 3, D-79104 Freiburg, Germany

We investigate on polymers in the form of small world networks (SWN) the influence of hydrodynamic effects using the Zimm model, with a preaveraged Oseen tensor. The monomers (beads) are connected by harmonic springs and they are subjected to external fields. A SWN realization starts from a *N*-monomer ring, whose pairs of beads are randomly connected, with probability *p*, by additional links. Varying *p* from 0 to 0.5 we consider the averaged mean square displacement of the polymers, the storage and the loss moduli, *G*′(ω) and *G*″(ω).

In the Zimm model, as in the Rouse model [1], changes in structure are evident in an intermediate (time or frequency) domain; even very small but nonvanishing *p* lead to changes from the *p*=0 case. Furthermore, the long time domain is reached earlier by structures with more crosslinks (higher *p*).
