Abstract/Summary

In this book chapter, we focus on the basic questions on dynamics of entangled polymers that faced the earliest researchers, and see how their answers stand up in light of what has been learned in the last 40 years. In the process, we hope to provide the novice with a basic understanding of the physical concepts without burdening the reader with the mathematics, or with detailed data that can easily be found in the books referred to above. At the same time, we hope to update the knowledgeable non-specialist with the latest developments in the area. For the expert, we hope to provoke new ways of thinking about an old, but incompletely solved, problem area.
