Abstract: We review briefly the general assumptions underlying hole theories of the configurational thermodynamic functions for single and multiconstituent systems. From the original Simha-Somcynsky theory several important modifications have recently evolved. First, there is a revision of the combinatorial entropy originating from the mixing of segments and holes in the spirit of Huggins's theory. With consistent additional modifications of the configurational free energy, quantitatively significant consequences for c…
