Description - Soft Matter by Gerhard Gompper

The fourth volume in this series focuses on biological membrane science, in particular its biophysics. Clearly divided into two parts, the first covers red blood cell shapes, while the second part on molecular simulation provides in-depth information on how to make significant progress with membrane characterization by means of models, and how to refine them by comparing them to experiments. The result is a highly relevant monograph for both an understanding of the biophysical concepts as well as of novel applications.
