Review:


"[A] need has long existed for texts suitable for an introductory graduate or senior undergraduate course. Soft Condensed Matter, by Richard A. L. Jones, is the first textbook to meet that need. ... It should make teaching much easier, which in turn should result in many more soft acondensed matter courses being offered. That will surely help the field to grow even more."--Physics Today


"The book is targeted at final-year undergraduates and graduate students, but I would push it in front of anyone starting to work with polymers, oils or concentrated dispersions in industry - even an old lag like myself found a number of interesting new insights. ... I hope that [Jones] can be persuaded to write a volume 2."--Chemistry in Britain

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Condition: New. Corr. repr. Language: English. Brand new Book. The physics of soft condensed matter is probably one of the most 'fashionable' areas in the physical sciences today. This book offers a coherent and clear introduction to the properties and behaviour of soft matter. It begins with a treatment of the general underlying principles: the relation of the structure and dynamics of solids and liquids to intermolecular forces, the thermodynamics and kinetics of phase transitions, and the principles of self-assembly. Then thespecific properties of colloids, polymers, liquid crystals and self-assembling amphiphilic systems are treated within this framework. A concluding chapter illustrates how principles of soft matter physics can be used to understand properties of biological systems. The focus on the essentials and thestraightforward approach make the book suitable for students with either a theoretical or an experimental bias. The level is appropriate for final year undergraduates and beginning graduate students in physics, chemistry, materials science, and chemical engineering. Seller Inventory # AOP9780198505891
