Cover: A novel hybrid simulation approach combines the deterministic and stochastic modeling of complex polymerization networks, for all types of polymerization reactions in ideal and non-ideal reactors. The fast deterministic simulation solves the heat and pressure balances and generates position-dependent event frequency profiles. The detailed stochastic simulation offers insight into the polymeric microstructure of each macromolecule. Further details can be found in the article by E. Neuhaus, T. Herrmann, I. Vittorias, D. Lilge, G. Mannebach, A. Gonioukh, and M. Busch* on page 415.
