Polymers are all around us. It would be impossible to imagine our life today without them: plastics are at home, in cars, trains, airplanes, in computers and TV sets. We even would not be able to withdraw money from a bank machine without a plastic card. Polymer molecules are very long and thin chains. That feature made it possible to apply a rather sophisticated but beautiful mathematics to describe them and to put all that mathematics to powerful computer codes to predict polymer materials properties. due to that feature, polymer physics is very distinct from the physics of any other matter and other molecules. You can read more about modelling of very fascinating type of polymers, block copolymers, in this book:
