### Abstract

The paper describes the results of a simulation of a model of a random chain embedded as a self-avoiding walk on a diamond lattice. The equation of motion method permits such functions as the dynamic structure factor to be calculated as easily as the density of states. Results on the density of states for chains of 1000 monomers. The results illustrate a mechanism of harmonic self-stabilization of a chain, which is discussed in physical terms.
