Renormalized field theory of polymer solutions : extension to general polydispersity

Abstract

2014 We extend the renormalization group approach to polymer solutions of arbitrary chain length distribution (polydispersity). In the excluded volume limit polydispersity can be classified as neither relevant, irrelevant, nor marginal. The qualitative properties (the exponents) are not influenced by polydispersity. The quantitative results (scaling… (More)
