Abstract

A transparent conformation space renormalization group formalism is given which can incorporate arbitrary molecular weight distributions to the theory of semi-dilute polymer solutions. The closed forms for the osmotic pressure π and the mean square end-to-end distance of a single test chain are given to order ε{lunate}=4-d, d being the spatial dimensionality, as functionals of the molecular weight distribution function. The scaling form of π is compared to the recent experimental result by Noda et al. A distribution sensitive universal plot is also proposed.
