The HYDRO family of programs (HYDRO, HYDROPRO, HYDROMIC, HYDROSUB, HYDROPIX,...) provides the basic solution properties, including hydrodynamic coefficients, radius of gyration and covolume, scattering-related properties, etc. SOLPRO is an ancillary program intended for the calculation of two other classes of solution properties

- Time dependent properties, including (1) Fluorescence anisotropy decay; (2) Electric birefringence and electric dichroism decay (3) Decay of the function <P2(t)> for a particle-fixed vector, <P2(t)> being a shorthand notation for the time-dependent function <(3cos
^{2}(J)-1)/2>, where is J the angle subtended by two orientations of that vector separated by time t. - Shape-dependent, size-independent quantities, like the Perrin parameter P (also known as f/f
_{0}), the viscosity increment (Einstein-Shima parameter), the Flory parameters for translational diffusion and intrinsic viscosity, and many, many others.
