In this thesis the phase behaviour of melts of chain-like molecules, also known as polymers, is studied. Polymers are built from monomers. These monomers are connected consecutively to form chains. If all monomers are of the same kind the chain is called a homopolymer. The polymers studied in this thesis are block copolymers. In a block copolymer different kinds of homopolymers or so-called blocks are connected. For example a diblock copolymer consists of two different kinds of blocks A and B connected to each other.
