## A rheological and structural study of polymer networksContents of this doctoral dissertation include: primary polymer molecules with a mondisperse distribution of the molecular weights, crosslinks of any functionality, primary polymer molecules with a disperse distribution of the molecular weights, the sol fraction, number and weight average degrees of polymerization, Schulz-Zimm distribution, fractions of ideal networks and dangling ends, molar masses between the crosslinks |
