ReseñaThis volume provides a look at the world of polymers, describing the roles they play in our everyday lives and the physics behind them. The book is accompanied by a CD-ROM that provides a graphic simulation of the patterns and behaviour of polymers. The text addresses the nature and role of giant molecules, which are the source for polymer chains.
Grosberg explains what giant molecules are, how they are formed, where they are applied, and why they are important in everyday life and in science. A CD-ROM enclosed with the book provides simulation of typical behaviour of polymers and also allows the user to create a broad variety of movies simulating an almost arbitrary polymer system.
