Title: Application of the Euler characteristic to the study of homopolymer blends and copolymer melts
Abstract: The Euler characteristic is applied to study the pi-case phenomena occurring in polymer mixtures. Several used to compute Euler characteristics are described and in terms of accuracy and efficiency. A novel, robust and exact based on simplex decomposition is presented. The simulated of spinodal decomposition and the phase equilibrium diagram gradient copolymers are analyzed in terms of Euler characteristics. the Euler characteristics are applied to specify the connectivity bicontinuous patterns, to distinguish the disperse and the morphologies, and to detect the percolation transition. the spinodal decomposition, the dynamic transformation between bicontinuous and the droplet patterns is shown to involve the formation of a transient cylindrical''} morphology.
