Systems displaying competing interactions of some kind arewidespread - much more, in fact, as commonly anticipated (magneticand Ising-type interactions or the dynamics of DNA molecules beingonly two popular examples).

Written for researchers in the field with different professionalbackgrounds, this volume classifies phenomena not by system butrather by the type of competing interactions involved. This allowsfor a straightforward presentation of the underlying principles andthe universal laws governing the behaviour of differentsystems.

Starting with a historical overview, the author proceeds bydescribing self-competitions of various types of interactions (suchas diploar or multipolar interactions), competitions between ashort-range and a long-range interaction (as in Ising systems orDNA models) or between a long-range interaction and an anisotropy(as in ultrathin magnetic films or magnetic nanoparticles) andfinally competitions between interactions of the same range (as inspin glasses).

Each chapter contains a few problems with solutions which providesuitable material for lecturers of mathematics and physics as wellas biology courses.
A vast body of references to the original literature make thevolume self-contained and ideally suited to master thisinterdisciplinary field.
