- World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 150.00
This is a monograph written for the young and advanced researcher entering the field of wet granular matter, and is keen to understand the basic physical principles governing this state of soft matter. It treats wet granulates as an instance of a ternary system, consisting of the grains, a primary, and a secondary fluid. After addressing wetting phenomena... more...

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...

Soft matter is a concept which covers polymers, liquid crystals, colloids, amphiphilic molecules, glasses, granular and biological materials. One of the fundamental characteristic features of soft matter is that it exhibits various mesoscopic structures originating from a large number of internal degrees of freedom of each molecule. Due to such intermediate... more...

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...

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...

Soft condensed matter physics, which emerged as a distinct branch of physics in the 1990s, studies complex fluids: liquids in which structures with length scale between the molecular and the macroscopic exist. Polymers, liquid crystals, surfactant solutions, and colloids fall into this category. Physicists deal with properties of soft matter systems... more...

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...

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...

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...
- 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...
