9780198519768: The Theory of Polymer Dynamics (The International Series of Monographs on Physics)

This book provides a comprehensive account of the modern theory for the dynamical properties of polymer solutions. The theory has undergone dramatic evolution over the last two decades due to the introduction of new methods and concepts that have extended experimental frontiers from dilute solutions in which polymers move independently to concentrated solutions where many polymers converge. Among the properties examined are viscoelasticity, diffusion, dynamic light scattering, and electric birefringence. Nonlinear viscoelasticity is discussed in detail on the basis of molecular dynamical models. The book bridges the gap between classical theory and new developments, creating a consistent picture of polymer solution dynamics over the entire concentration range.

Review:


"Highly recommended to polymer physicists, polymer chemists, and graduate students in polymer physics programs. A solid mathematical base is essential background for understanding this text." --Concordia University


"This volume concentrates on the dynamics of polymers in the liquid state--that is the dynamics of their solutions and melts where recently it has become possible to offer theories which explain the salient features of these complex systems. . . . This book which belongs to the international series of monographs on physics is presented at a high scientific level and is highly recommended to polymer physicists, polymer chemists, and graduate students in polymer physics programs." --Journal of Polymer Science
