    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    A copolymer model consisting of non-corporal, flexible and interacting rigid parts is considered. The entropy of conformation of the system with a random steric structure has been calculated and shown to consist of relatively short chains below the θ point after a phase transition of first order; the transition is accompanied by the establishment of a highly orientated order of the rigid parts.
