Abstract: We investigate by Monte Carlo simulation the thermodynamic behavior of a linear heteropolymer in which the interaction between different monomers contains a quenched random component. We show the existence, along with the usual coil and globule ones, of a new phase, the folded phase, characterized by long relaxation times and by the existence of few stable states.
