POLYCARLO is a computer program implementing conformational statistics and dilute solution properties of flexible polymers, coarse-grained modeling, computer simulation (Monte Carlo) procedures, macromolecular hydrodynamics, etc. It has been devised as an educational tool so that it is easy to use in order to carry out instructive computational experiments for the teaching of a variety of disciplines at the undergraduate level.

For more details, see the POLYCARLO User Guide
