Table 1 Summary of conditions and Flory exponents expected for the three typical polymer folding states

From: Polymer coil–globule phase transition is a universal folding principle of Drosophila epigenetic domains

  Coil (SAW) Theta-polymer (RW) Globule
Condition: \(\varepsilon < \varepsilon _{\theta }\) \(\varepsilon _{\theta } = k_B\Theta \simeq 0.27\) \(\varepsilon _{\theta } <\varepsilon\)
Flory \(\nu\): 3/5 1/2 1/3
