**Abstract:**** **

Hydrogel
is a kind of polymeric materials, have attracted some theoretical and
experimental studies. The new hydrogel
predominately consists of MMS (macromolecular microsphere), chains and water
molecules, which shapes its well-defined structure and high mechanical
strength. But, how is it phase transition and forming this well-defined
micro-structure? Why the hydrogels have such high mechanical strengths?** **What is the structure-property
relationship? How do the structural factors affect, such as nanoparticle size,
grafting density, polymer chain length, entanglement, and so on? Here we will
review some mathematical progress to partly answer them, including phase
transition, micro-structure, macro-property and related numerical methods.
Meanwhile, we also present some mathematical problems to be solved.**
