Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A heuristic approach to the excluded-volume problem of a polymer chain is given. The universality of the exponent for the mean square end-to-end distance is also intuitively explained. The approach is closely related to Imry's interdimensional scaling theory, but does not utilize the polymer-magnet analogy due to de Gennes.
