Basic Concepts for Simple and Complex Liquids


Basic Concepts for Simple and Complex Liquids

Presenting a unified approach, this book focuses on the theoretical concepts and methods necessary for understanding the physics and chemistry of the fluid state. Important ideas are presented concisely and illustrated with examples from simple molecular liquids and more complex soft condensed matter systems such as polymers, colloids, and liquid crystals.


 Reviews:

"a concise, very well-written textbook by two experts in the field, should help fill this gap in the physics curriculum..."A wealth of material is covered in fewer than 300 pages. This textbook is the only one that I know of that succinctly tackles such a diverse set of topics and attempts to find common viewpoints and theoretical approximations...I enjoyed reading asic Concepts for Simple and Complex Liquids and have used it in my own research group to introduce students to new research areas and ideas. the authors should be commended for an impressive pedagogical achievement."
