    Abstract

    The Edwards equation for polymers in solution is rigorously derived (based on the work of Freed1) in this review. Then it is shown, how researchers have adapted this equation for describing polymers at surfaces. A brief comment on the validity of the random flight model, which forms the basis for the Edwards equation, is made.
