A polymer solution that is bounded by two infinite parallel flat walls is studied. It is assumed that the polymer is in good solution. The dependence of properties of the polymer solution on the total monomer concentration, on interactions between the walls and the monomers, and on the relation between the polymerization index and the distance between walls is considered. The phase diagram of the solution was obtained.
