Statistical Mechanics Of Membranes And Surfaces
Add to cart
US$ 113.00
This invaluable book explores the delicate interplay between geometry and statistical mechanics in materials such as microemulsions, wetting and growth interfaces, bulk lyotropic liquid crystals, chalcogenide glasses and sheet polymers, using tools from the fields of polymer physics, differential geometry, field theory and critical phenomena. Several chapters have been updated relative to the classic 1989 edition. Moreover, there are now three entirely new chapters — on effects of anisotropy and heterogeneity, on fixed connectivity membranes and on triangulated surface models of fluctuating membranes.

“This is the book I used to get introduced into the field of the statistical mechanics of membranes and surfaces. I still use it and recommend it to my students and to anyone who is interested in this very exciting field. The different chapters describe detailed and clear mathematical developments, experimental presentations and high quality numerical work presented with superb clarity. This book, with its newest updated second edition, will remain as a reference textbook for many years to come.” Alex Travesset
