In a polymer network, the introduction of crosslinks affects both the configurational entropy of the chains and the short range repulsions between individual monomers. The ‘replica method’ calculation outlined gives the elastic properties — both bulk and shear — of a polymer network formed in solution, in terms of a free energy of deformation. Corrections due to excluded volume appear on the behaviour under shear, and a change in the osmotic terms due to crosslinking is also found.
