Abstract

Relaxation processes due to interchange reactions in polymer systems are analyzed by use of the analogy with the Boltzmann equation for a gas of hard spheres. The linear rate of relaxation of a perturbation in the n-mer concentration is obtained. By use of Monte Carlo simulation, the range of validity of the linear approximation is shown to be fairly large.
