The Theory of Polymer Dynamics
Introduction Static properties of polymers Brownian motion Dynamics of flexible polymers in dilute solution Many chain systems Dynamics of a polymer in a fixed network Molecular theory for the
Theory of spin glasses
A new theory of the class of dilute magnetic alloys, called the spin glasses, is proposed which offers a simple explanation of the cusp found experimentally in the susceptibility. The argument is
The surface statistics of a granular aggregate
The problem of the surface fluctuations in a settled granular material is posed. A simple model is given which describes the process by which a particle settles and comes to rest on the existing
The computer study of transport processes under extreme conditions
A method is developed to investigate the behaviour of a liquid under the action of a very high shearing force using computer simulated molecular dynamics. Values for the viscosity are calculated but
Dynamics of concentrated polymer systems. Part 1.—Brownian motion in the equilibrium state
In this series of papers, the dynamics of polymers in melts and concentrated solutions are discussed with the eventual aim of constructing the rheological constitutive equation. The basic ideas are
Dynamics of concentrated polymer systems. Part 4.—Rheological properties
The constitutive equation for polymer melts and concentrated solutions derived in the previous papers is applied to two typical rheometrical flows: steady and transient shear flow, oscillatory shear
Dynamics of concentrated polymer systems. Part 2.—Molecular motion under flow
The primitive chain model presented in Part 1 is extended to the case in which the system is macroscopically deformed. The molecular expression of the stress due to the primitive chain is given, and
Dynamics of concentrated polymer systems. Part 3.—The constitutive equation
The rheological constitutive equation of a condensed polymer system is presented based on the primitive chain model presented in Parts 1 and 2. The constitutive equation has the form of a BKZ
The statistical mechanics of polymers with excluded volume
The probability distribution of the configurations of a polymer consisting of freely hinged links of length l and excluded volume v is studied. It is shown that the interaction of the polymer with
