520 This book contains contributions from a workshop on
topology and geometry of polymers, held at the IMA in June
1996, which brought together topologists,
combinatorialists, theoretical physicists and polymer
scientists, with a common interest in polymer topology.
Polymers can be highly self-entangled even in dilute
solution. In the melt the inter- and intra-chain
entanglements can dominate the rheological properties of
these phenomena. Although the possibility of knotting in
ring polymers has been recognized for more than thirty
years it is only recently that the powerful methods of
algebraic topology have been used in treating models of
polymers. This book contains a series of chapters which
review the current state of the field and give an up to
date account of what is known and perhaps more importantly,
what is still unknown. The field abounds with open
problems. The book is of interest to workers in polymer
statistical mechanics but will also be useful as an
introduction to topological methods for polymer scientists,
and will introduce mathematicians to an area of science
where topological approaches are making a substantial
contribution
