### Abstract:

This is an account of the theory and mathematical approaches in polymer entropy, with particular emphasis on mathematical approaches to directed and undirected lattice models. Results in the scaling and critical behaviour of models of directed and undirected models of self-avoiding walks, paths, polygons, animals and networks are presented. The general theory of tricritical scaling is reviewed in the context of models of lattice clusters, and the existence of a thermodynamic limit in these models is discussed in general and for particular models.
