13 of 13 people found the following review helpful By velankar@che.udel.edu on September 12, 1998
Format: Paperback
Firstly, this book is NOT for someone wanting an introduction to polymer science. There is little here that would be of use in a first course in polymers. The book is very slim (a scarce 113 pages), divided into five chapters covering individual polymer chains, melts, gels, dynamics in dilute solutions, and finally dynamics in the entanglement regime. The intense detail of Doi and Edwards is left out but the level of mathematical description is comparable. Strongly recommended as an introduction to polymer physics, especially because it covers a lot of important issues in a very brief, easy-to-understand, but rigorous fashion.

The finest aspect of the book is its thickness; in just over 100 pages Doi essentially summarises everything in Polymer Dynamics. In some sense the book is meant as a bridge between the graduate level courses on Polymer Dynamics/Physics and book: The Theory of Polymer Dynamics and hence is assessible only with some background on basics. Nevertheless its serves its purpose pretty well.

It's short and to the point, explaining all the fundamentals needed to progress in this field.

Reading the reviews for Theory of Polymer Dynamics, I purchased this book and it is indeed a great introduction to polymer physics.
