In the first two chapters, the fundamental physics both existing and required are described. Chapter 1 is the most theoretical of the chapters and introduces the theoretical platform. Chapter 2 and especially Chapter 3 moves the reader along to consider the applications of the theoretical platform to along to consider the applications of the theoretical platform to molecular dynamics and devices. Chapter 3 points out the need to extend some theoretical methods of physics itself in order to deal with the applied problems. Theoretical analyses which are necessary but require considerable time to develop and bring to engineering fruition are described in these first three chapters. Chapter 4 introduces the study of specific polymer systems, namely proteins, and Chapter 5 consides the broader area of polymer science and a specific example of energy harvesting. In Chapter 6 there is progress toward the applied with the introduction of the important field of enzyme mimics. Chapters 7 and 8 discuss basic science issues of enzymatic function. Chapters 9 and 10 define precise avenues of approach to obtaining enzyme control and also indicate the difficulties and complexities. Chapter 11 brings the reader down-to-earth to the practical and short-term requirements of bio-organic synthesis control. Chapter 12 addresses the pressing need for research and training, in general, in Polymer Science.
