Abstract. The problem of charged polymer chains (polyelectrolytes) as they adsorb on a planar
surface is addressed theoretically. We review the basic mechanisms and theory underlying
polyelectrolyte adsorption on a single surface in two situations: adsorption of a single
charged chain, and adsorption from a bulk solution in solvent conditions. The behavior
of flexible and semi-rigid chains is discussed separately and is expressed as function
of the polymer and surface charges, ionic strength of the solution and polymer bulk
concentration. We mainly review mean-field results and briefly comment about fluctuation
