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

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

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.

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.

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.

By AMFAW on November 9, 2010
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.
