Abstract

We develop a new formulation of polymer self-consistent field theory for polydisperse copolymer fluids satisfying the Schulz-Flory distribution. The result we obtain is remarkably simple and quickly solved numerically. The computational effort scales inversely with the width of the Schulz-Flory distribution. This suggests a significant saving in computational effort when compared with existing approximate solutions of the polymer self-consistent field equations for polydispersed systems.
