Abstract: We introduce a self-avoiding walk model for which end-effects are completely eliminated. We enumerate the number of these walks on the square and cubic lattices, and use these enumerations to study the properties of this model in two and three dimensions. The technique by which end-effects are eliminated may be generalised to other models of polymers such as interacting self-avoiding walks.
