Statistics and Dynamics of Polymer Molecules in Solution

  • William C. Forsman

Abstract

This chapter is intended to serve two purposes. First, it offers a short commentary on theoretical material that can be used as a background for much of the experimental and theoretical discussion given in subsequent chapters. It is aimed at scholars with a serious interest in polymer theory, but not particularly familiar with its development. The coverage is not exhaustive, nor is this chapter intended to be a full-scale technical review. Rather, the intent is to offer a view of the mathematical and physical underpinnings upon which current theoretical and experimental methods are built. Much of the material is thus found in various treatises, the earliest now being almost a classic.1–3 Little is said here about the newer theoretical developments. These subjects will be introduced at the appropriate places in subsequent chapters, and have been recently reviewed.4,5
