Continuum Formulation for Polymers in Solution- A Review

Author(s): Anand V. P. Gurumoorthy and Rambabu Krishnamoorthy

The Edwards equation for polymers in solution is rigorously derived (based on the work of Freed1 ) in this review. Then it is shown, how researchers have adapted this equation for describing polymers at surfaces. A brief comment on the validity of the random flight model, which forms the basis for the Edwards equation, is made.
