The novel characteristics in a "long semiflexible" chain different from a "short stiff" chain were emphasized. From the given results, it became evident that to form a critical nucleus during thermal fluctuation, about 200 monomeric units were required. Thus it was almost impossible to form a natural critical nucleus for a short stiff chain.
