Phase transitions "order-disorder" in surface polymer systems with interchain orientational coupling
The phase transitions from isotropic into ordered state in the 2D polymer systems consisting of chains with fixed mean-square length of segments and those of chains of rigid elements are considered. Short and long-range orientational order in these systems are compared both by the self-consistent field approach and the multichain models.
