Abstract

The initial decay rate of the dynamical-scattering factor for dilute polymer solutions is calculated with the aid of the renormalization-group theory, which has given reasonable results for transport coefficients. The fundamental kinetic equation for a polymer chain is reconsidered critically and the necessity of the expansion is explained.
