This book provides a molecular view on the fundamental issues in polymer physics with the aim of meeting the needs of students on chemistry, chemical engineering, condensed matter physics, and material science courses. It has already proved to be an extremely effective learning resource, and in this updated English version, the author, a renowned Chinese chemist, covers the most recent developments in the field. The subject is presented concisely and efficiently, ensuring that the book will be particularly suitable for teaching or learning polymer physics in settings where time is limited. At the same time, no sacrifices have been made with regard to the scope of the coverage, which is appropriately extensive.
