We present predictions for the static scaling exponents and for the cross-over polymer volumetric fractions in the marginal and concentrated solution regimes. Corrections for finite chain length are made. Predictions are based on an analysis of correlated fluctuations i... View more

    7 We follow the widespread convention of using N no subindex for a generic chain length in a scaling law. It should not cause confusion with the number of chains Ni of a particular length i.
