Soft condensed matter

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

    Springer New York 2008; US$ 133.66

    This IMA Volume in Mathematics and its Applications MODELING OF SOFT MATTER contains papers presented at a very successful workshop with the same ti­ tle. The event, which was held on September 27-October 1, 2004, was an integral part of the 2004-2005 IMA Thematic Year on "Mathematics of Ma­ terials and Macromolecules: Multiple Scales, Disorder, and... more...

  • Soft Matter Physicsby Masao Doi

    OUP Oxford 2013; US$ 79.99

    Soft matter (polymers, colloids, surfactants, liquid crystals) are an important class of materials for modern and future technologies. They are complex materials that behave neither like a fluid nor a solid. This book describes the characteristics of such materials and how we can understand such characteristics in the language of physics. more...

  • Dynamics of Soft Matterby VICTORIA GARCIA SAKAI; Christiane Alba-Simionesco; Sow Hsin Chen

    Springer US 2011; US$ 195.76

    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...

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

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 159.05

    Recently there have been profound developments in the understanding and interpretation of liquids and soft matter centered on constituents with sho- range interactions. Ionic soft matter is a class of conventional condensed soft matter with prevailing contribution from electrostatics and, therefore, can be subject to possible long-range correlations... more...

  • Wet Granular Matterby S. Herminghaus

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 96.00 US$ 87.36

    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...

  • Fundamentals of Soft Matter Scienceby Linda S. Hirst

    CRC Press 2012; US$ 89.95

    Soft materials such as liquid crystals, polymers, biomaterials, and colloidal systems touch every aspect of our lives. Not surprisingly, the rapid growth of these fields over the past few decades has resulted in an explosion of soft matter research groups worldwide. Fundamentals of Soft Matter Science introduces and explores the scientific study... more...

  • Non-equilibrium Soft Matter Physicsby Shigeyuki Komura

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 118.00 US$ 107.38

    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...

  • Soft Matterby Roberto Piazza

    Springer Netherlands 2011; US$ 30.58

    From toys to trainers, the world would be very different without plastic. From paint to toothpaste, what would we do without colloids? This fascinating exploration reveals what these materials have in common and aspects of their behavior that make them useful. more...

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

    CRC Press 2006; US$ 121.95

    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...

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

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 207.99

    Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Soft Matter under Exogenic Impacts: Fundamentals and Emerging Technologies, Odessa, Ukraine, 8-12 October 2005 more...
