  • Preface tothe Electronic Edition

    It has been just thirty years since this volume, Modern Theory ofPolymer Solutions, was published by Harper & Row, Publishers. It isnow out of print but is still in some demand. Furthermore, it is alsoan introduction to the authors new book, Helical Wormlike Chainsin Polymer Solutions, published by Springer-Verlag in 1997, althoughsome parts of it are now too old and classical and have only the sig-nificance of historical survey. Under these circumstances, the authorapproved of the preparation of this electronic edition without revisionat the Laboratory of Polymer Molecular Science, Department of Poly-mer Chemistry, Kyoto University. On that occasion, however, he at-tempted his efforts to correct errors as much as possible. Finally, it isa pleasure to thank Prof. T. Yoshizaki, Mrs. E. Hayashi, and his othercollaborators for preparing this electronic edition.

  • Foreword

    One of the rewards of academic life is the opportunity to meet and workwith talented individuals from all over the world. In 1961 Hiromi Yamakawacame to the University of Chicago to work in my laboratory. We had afruitful collaboration and I learned much from him. I have followed hissubsequent work with interest; there are, for me, few pleasures that cancompare with the witnessing of the intellectual evolution and continuingcontributions of former colleagues.

    It is in this spirit that I welcome the writing of this book by ProfessorHiromi Yamakawa. He has made many contributions to the theory ofpolymer solutions, and writes from the balanced point of view of researchworker and teacher. I believe this book complements those dealing withpolymer solutions already published. No other text available so consistentlyincludes the effect of excluded volume on the properties of dilute polymersolutions, and no other so fully develops the distribution function theoryapproach. For these reasons I recommend the text to research workers andstudents. Although the presentation is concise, and continuous effort isrequired to extract all the information implicit in the theory, the reward forsuch concentration is large.

  • Preface

    It is well known that statistical mechanics provides a tool for thedescription of the relationship between the macroscopic behavior of sub-stances and their atomic and/or molecular properties. Clearly, the sameprinciples apply to polymer science as to the study of small molecules.However, polymeric systems are too complicated to treat rigorously onthe basis of molecular mechanics, because polymer molecules have anexceedingly great number of internal degrees of freedom, and therebyalso very complicated intramolecular and intermolecular interactions.Thus, it is only for dilute solutions that a molecular theory of poly-mers can be developed in the spirit of, for instance, the equilibriumand nonequilibrium statistical mechanical theory of simple fluids. Infact, the physical processes which occur in dilute polymer solutionscan be described in terms of only a few parameters using the random-fligh
