Abstract : A molecular theory of the viscoelastic behavior of organic glasses is presented. This is a damped lattice model, where the friction factor is calculated from the Cohen-Turnbull equation. The normal coordinate treatment is approximated by classical Debye theory. A simple result is derived with no arbitrary parameters. (Author)
