Lectures on Random Polymers
by F. Caravenna, F. den Hollander, N. Petrelis
Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 74
These lecture notes are a guided tour through the fascinating world of polymer chains interacting with themselves and/or with their environment. The focus is on the mathematical description of a number of physical and chemical phenomena, with particular emphasis on phase transitions and space-time scaling.
