While there are many excellent textbooks and reference books covering the chemistry, physics, rheology, processing, and characterization of polymers, this textbook is the first treatment in one place of the modeling and simulation of polymerization reactions. This is the very model of a textbook; not only is it single-authored, but also it comes with chapter introductions, chapter summaries, worked examples, exercises, and many references to the literature. In addition, this book will serve as a reference for students, researchers, post-doctoral workers, and polymer scientists both inside and outside of academia. Courses using this book may be found in departments of polymer engineering & science, chemical engineering, bioengineering, and chemistry.
