Density functional theory for flexible and semiflexible polymers of infinite length

Woodward, Clifford E and Forsman, Jan LU (2006) In Physical Review E (Statistical, Nonlinear, and Soft Matter Physics) 74(1).
Abstract
We develop a density functional theory for infinitely long flexible and semiflexible polymers, as an appropriate simplification of the corresponding treatment of finite chains. We demonstrate that very long chains sometimes are required to reproduce even qualitatively correct limiting behaviors.
