Analytical results are given for the interaction between two planar surfaces separated by a solution of ideal polymers, allowing for a short-range attractive interaction between each monomer and the walls, and treating the cases of both full equilibrium and restricted equilibrium. Results are obtained for a finite chain with discrete monomers, and also for the long chain limit. The behavior of multiblock copolymers is examined by varying the monomer-wall interactions for each monomer.
