Book Description

November 1, 1990 0198520336 978-0198520337
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 the frontier of theory 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.

Editorial Reviews

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

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for the best. April 12, 1997
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is great.
It clearifies many ideas about polymer dynamics.
If you want to understand more about this area, there is no better book to start with.
But be careful, it was not designed for beginners.
This is really great

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, but not for beginners February 14, 2001
Format:Paperback
This book is excellent, there is maybe none better that gets into the fundamentals of polymer motion. A warning: I read two or three other textbooks before I could understand this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic August 4, 2002
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent book: but to grasp everything one will need to read through a few simpler texts first, say Scaling Concepts by de Gennes, Introduction to Polymer Physics by Doi, some Rheology book say Viscoelastic properties of Polymers by Ferry and Polymer Solutions by I Teraoka.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good July 16, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book by Doi, but after reading the previous reviews in addition to this book, I purchased Doi's Introduction to Polymer Physics. I am glad that I did.

3.0 out of 5 stars THE theory? November 9, 2010
By AMFAW
Format:Paperback
Its treatment of the dynamics of entangled polymer is predicated on the assumption that the network, along with the tube, survives during large deformation. It is not obvious that this is true.
