This book provides an important structural analysis of polymer solutions and melts, using fractal analysis.

This book for the first time gives structural analysis of polymer solutions and melts. The fractal analysis is used for this purpose.

The book covers the theoretical fundamentals of macromolecules fractal analysis and then goes on to discuss the fractal physics of polymer solutions and the fractal physics of melts.

The intended audience of the book includes specialists in chemistry and physics of polymers synthesis field and and those in the field of polymers and polymer composites processing.
