Low-frequency dynamics of dilute solutions of linear polymers
Moscow Institute of Economics and Statistics, Moscow, Russian Federation
A review is presented of the results of the theory of relaxation of the macromolecule and of the dynamics of a dilute solution of polymers, with intramolecular interactions, hydrodynamic impermeability, and internal viscosity of the macromolecule taken into account. The linear viscoelasticity and optical anisotropy of the system are examined. Typical features of the behaviour of dilute solutions of polymers at various frequencies are discussed.
