Soft Condensed Matter by Richard A. L. Jones

Book Description

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 the specific 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 the straightforward 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.

Soft Machines by Richard A. L. Jones Soft Machines, Paperback (November 2007)

Enthusiasts look forward to a time when tiny machines reassemble matter and process information with unparalleled power and precision. Is their vision realistic? This book explains why the nanoworld is so different to the macro-world, and shows how nanotechnology will have more in common with biology than conventional engineering.

Soft Condensed Matter by Richard A. L. Jones Soft Condensed Matter, Paperback (June 2002)

Offers a coherent introduction to the properties and behaviour of soft matter. This title includes colloids, polymers, liquid crystals, and amphiphiles. It is suitable for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students of physics, chemistry, materials science, and chemical engineering.

Polymers at Surfaces and Interfaces by Richard A. L. Jones Polymers at Surfaces and Interfaces, Paperback (April 1999)

This final year undergraduate textbook deals with the behaviour of polymers at surfaces and interfaces.
