Molecular weight distributions for the polymer produced in a cascade of well-stirred reactors are constructed using the Mathematica software package for symbol mathematical operations. It is shown that the rate of chain transfer to polymer affects the distributions of macromolecules over the degree of polymerization and the number of active sites.
