If you have a question about this talk, please contact Mike Gunn. Polymers in dilute solution can adsorb at a surface and the adsorbed polymer can be pulled off the surface by atomic force microscopy. The standard model for polymer ad- sorption is a self-avoiding walk on a lattice, interacting with an impenetrable surface, and this model can be extended to include a force. The background to this problem will be discussed and some recent rigorous results on the model will be described.
