Written by leading experts from around the world, Monte Carlo and Molecular Dynamics Simulations in Polymer Science comprehensively reviews the latest simulation techniques for macromolecular materials. Focusing in particular on numerous new techniques, the book offers authoritative introductions to solutions of neutral polymers and polyelectrolytes; dynamics of polymer melts, rubbers and gels, and glassy materials; thermodynamics of polymer mixing and mesophase formation, and polymers confined at interfaces and grafted to walls. Throughout, contributors offer practical advice on how to overcome the unique challenges posed by the large size and slow relaxation of polymer coils. Students and researchers in polymer chemistry, polymer physics, chemical engineering, and materials and computational science will all benefit from the cogent, step-by-step introductions contained in this important new book.

"This treatise provides a valuable perspective on theory, methodology, and selected applications of computer simulation to polymer physics and contains a unique collection of articles that will be of interest to those exploring the macroscopic behavior of macromolecules with atomistic models. The reader of this book will find it filled to the brim with timely current theory and valuable methodological details."--Journal of the American Chemical Society "This text provides the reader with important and concrete computational approaches to study complex polymer systems and is an important addition to the library of researchers in polymer physics."--American Scientist "This treatise provides a valuable perspective on theory, methodology, and selected applications of computer simulation to polymer physics and contains a unique collection of articles that will be of interest to those exploring the macroscopic behavior of macromolecules with atomistic models.
