(i) to discuss recent advances in the design of molecular models,
(ii) to develop constitutive equations for the mechanical behavior of solid polymers based on various scenarios for deformation at the micro-level, and
(iii) to compare results of numerical analysis with available experimental data and results of molecular dynamics simulation.
