SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIAL We model the amphiphiles as discrete Gaussian chains
 

Summary: 1
SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIAL
We model the amphiphiles as discrete Gaussian chains
having a solvophilic block and two solvophobic tails. For
each block, the harmonic potential for the chain connec-
tivity takes the form
hi({r}) =
3kT
2b2
N-1
a=1
(ri,a+1 - ri,a)2
,
where b is the bond length and N is the number of
monomers in the chain. The particle-based Hamiltonian
for the system, accounting for the chain connectivity of
the n amphiphiles and the pairwise energetic interactions
among species, is
H =
n
