Methods of determining the continuous and discrete relaxation spectra are analyzed with the object of choosing a characteristic describing the actual relaxation processes. It is shown that the discrete spectrum is a physically sounder characteristic and makes it possible to distinguish the most probable elementary relaxation processes. Problems of predicting the relaxation processes in real polymers can be simplified by using the discrete relaxation spectrum.
