Abstract

Self-consistent RISM integral equation theory of polymeric liquids is used to investigate the equilibrium properties of polymer solutions and melts. Density functional formalism is employed to derive the effective medium-induced potential between two sites on a polymer chain. The resulting expression leads to a coupling between the interchain and intrachain pair correlation functions.
