"An attempt has been made in the present work to derive some thermodynamic and structural properties of a linear chain of atoms (under somewhat idealized conditions) moving in the fields of nearest neighbours and assuming a parabolic well in the interaction of pairs within the range of relative movements. The equation of state and other formulas derived are applicable only to the linear model which could be considered as a simplified form of one-dimensional crystals in the form of chain-like molecules of rubber-like substances. An attempt has also been made to extend the model to two- and three-dimensional cases"--Introduction, page 5.
