  • Ionic Soft Matter: Modern Trends in Theory and Applicationsby Douglas Henderson; Myroslav Holovko; Andrij Trokhymchuk

    Springer 2006; US$ 149.00

    Consists of reviews of the experimental, theoretical and simulation studies on ionic criticality, polyelectrolytes, proton transport in fuel cell membranes, and the design of DNA arrays. This book deals with discussions of the fundamental and applied problems of important phenomena such as ion association, ion adsorption, ion solvation, and more. more...

  • Soft Matter Physicsby Masao Doi

    Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 79.99

    Soft matter (polymers, colloids, surfactants and liquid crystals) are an important class of materials in modern technology. They also form the basis of many future technologies, for example in medical and environmental applications. Soft matter shows complex behaviour between fluids and solids, and used to be a synonym of complex materials. Due to... more...

  • Forces, Growth and Form in Soft Condensed Matterby A.T. Skjeltorp; A.V. Belushkin

    Springer 2004; US$ 129.00

    The book reviews the current experimental and theoretical knowledge of the synergism between modern physics, soft condensed matter and biology, presenting a thorough discussion of the relative role of the various fundamental interactions in such systems: electrostatic, hydrophobic, steric, conformational, van der Waals, etc. These competing interactions... more...

  • Soft Condensed Matter Physics in Molecular and Cell Biologyby W.C.K. Poon; David Andelman

    CRC Press 2006; US$ 121.95

    INTRODUCTION: Coarse graining in biological soft matter The atomistic description of globular proteins: the tertiary structure Coarse-graining : level 1 Secondary structure; Coarse-graining : level 2 Domains Coarse-graining : level 3 Proteins as colloids Further coarse-graining I. SOFT MATTER BACKGROUND Introduction to colloidal systems Colloidal... more...

  • X-Ray Scattering of Soft Matterby Norbert Stribeck

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2007; US$ 169.00

    Summarizes the analytical power of modern X-ray scattering in the field of soft matter. This work offers a description of simple tools that can elucidate the mechanisms of structure evolution in the studied materials. It focuses on the planning of the experiments and adequate recording of all required data. more...

  • Modeling of Soft Matterby Maria-Carme T. Calderer; Eugene M. Terentjev

    Springer 2008; US$ 149.00

    The physics of soft matter, materials such as elastomers, gels, foams and liquid crystals, is an area of intense interest and study. Moreover, soft matter plays a role in a wide variety of important processes and application. This book presents a collection of papers representing the key aspects of the modeling of soft matter. more...

  • Soft Matter under Exogenic Impactsby Sylwester J. Rzoska; Victor A. Mazur

    Springer 2007; US$ 189.00

    a Soft Matter Under Exogenic Impactsa (TM) is fairly unique in supplying a comprehensive presentation of high pressures, negative pressures, random constraints and strong electric field exogenic (external) impacts on various soft matter systems. These are: (i) critical liquids, (ii) glass formers, such as supercooled liquids including water, polymers... more...

  • Polymers, Liquids and Colloids in Electric Fieldsby Yoav Tsori; Ullrich Steiner

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 154.00

    This unique book aims to expose the reader to a wide range of phenomena occurring when soft matter systems are put under the influence of an external electric field. The book shows how an electric field can be used to affect objects at the submicron scale, and how it controls the phase behavior of liquids and polymers. The main focus is on the basic... more...

  • Soft Matterby Roberto Piazza

    Springer 2011; US$ 24.95

    Roberto Piazza says: 'Physics should be made simple enough to be amusing, but not so trivial as to spoil the fun'. This is exactly the approach of this book in making the science of 'soft matter' relevant to everyday life - things such as the food we eat, the plastic we use, the concrete we build with, the cells we are made of. more...

  • Dynamics of Soft Matterby Victoria García Sakai; Christiane Alba-Simionesco; Sow-Hsin Chen

    Springer 2011; US$ 209.00

    Dynamics of Soft Matter: Neutron Applications provides an overview of neutron scattering techniques that measure temporal and spatial correlations simultaneously, at the microscopic and/or mesoscopic scale. These techniques offer answers to new questions arising at the interface of physics, chemistry, and biology. Knowledge of the dynamics at these... more...
