Diffusion and Reactions in Fractals and Disordered Systems by Daniel Ben-Avraham
Book DescriptionFractal structures are found everywhere in nature, and as a consequence anomalous diffusion has far reaching implications in a host of phenomena. This book describes diffusion and transport in disordered media such as fractals, porous rocks and random resistor networks. Divided into four Parts, Part I contains material of general interest to statistical physics: fractals, percolation theory, regular random walks and diffusion, continuous time random walks and Levy walks and flights. Part II covers anomalous diffusion in fractals and disordered media, while Part III serves as an introduction to the kinetics of diffusion-limited reactions. Part IV discusses the problem of diffusion-limited coalescence in one dimension. This book will be of particular interest to researchers requiring a clear introduction to the field. It will also be of interest to graduate students studying in areas of physics, chemistry, and engineering.

Author Biography - Daniel Ben-Avraham
Daniel ben-Avraham obtained his Ph.D. in Physics from Bar-Ilan University, Israel in 1985. After a 2 year Post-Doctoral position in the Center of Polymer Studies at the University of Boston, he gained a permanent position at Clarkson University where he is now Professor of Physics. Prof. ben-Avraham has spent time as Visiting Professor at various institutions including Heidelberg University, Bar-Ilan University and the European Center for Molecular Biology. He has published over 80 papers and contributed invited papers to several anthologies. Shlomo Havlin obtained his Ph.D. in 1972 from Bar-Ilan University. He stayed at Bar-Ilan University progressing through the ranks of Research Associate, Lecturer, Senior Lecturer and Associate Professor until in 1984 he became Professor and Chairman of the Department of Physics. He is currently Dean of the Faculty of Exact Sciences. Since 1978 Prof. Havlin has spent time as Visiting Professor at numerous institutions including the University of Edinburgh, the National Institute of Health (NIH) and Boston University. He is currently on the editorial board of 3 journals, author of over 400 papers, editor of 10 books and has given over 40 plenary and invited talks.
