This is the second part of a two-volume treatise serving as a status report on a broad area of polymer science research. It consolidates the work of many polymer researchers from around the world, over the past 70 years. The book consists of four parts. Part I introduces dynamics shared by monomeric and polymeric liquids, and introduces microscopic aspects. Part II offers a 'bare-bones' prologue to the theory introduced in later chapters. Part III, the core of the book, covers stress response to shear deformations, stress-deformation relationships, and experimental aspects. Part IV centers on the relationship between molecular structure and both diffusional behavior and flow properties for flexible chain polymer liquids. Two chapters in this part describe major molecular theories and their applications to nonentangled and highly entangled polymer liquids. The final three chapters are devoted to the dynamics of solutions beyond the overlap concentration, the effects of long-chain branching, and the effects of polydispersity. The book will be of interest to academic researchers in chemistry, physics, materials science, and chemical engineering. Graessley is affiliated with Princeton University and Northwestern University.
