Description

Edited by a world class polymer physicist, this is a book with chapters contributed by leading experts on the various computer simulation techniques used for macromolecular materials. It describes how to use simulation to explain experimental data and gain insight into structure and dynamic properties of polymeric structures. Explanations are given on how to overcome particular challenges posed by large size and slow relaxation polymer coils. Many important applications are covered including their current reviews.show more
