Although amphiphilic systems have attracted the interest of chemists and physicists for a long time, it is only recently that they have been studied experimentally in a systematic way. At the same time, the theoretical description of these systems has made considerable progress.
This book describes that progress by focusing on three principle approaches to self-assembling amphiphilic systems: microscopic models; intermediate length scale Ginzburg-Landau models; and large length scale interfacial (or membrane) models. The motivating ideas behind these approaches and their advantages and disadvantages are discussed. Whenever possible, contact is made with experiment and the book begins with a summary of relevant experimental results.
The only unified presentation on self-assembling amphiphillic systems
Key ideas are emphasized throughout the book

Assuming no previous knowledge of polymers, this book provides a general introduction to the physics of solid polymers. Covering a wide range of topics within the field of polymer physics, the book begins with a brief history of the development of synthetic polymers and an overview of the methods of polymerization and processing. In the following chapter, David Bower describes important experimental techniques used in the study of polymers. The main part of the book, however, is devoted to the structure and properties of solid polymers, including blends, copolymers and liquid crystal polymers.

Author: Ji-Tao Wang
This book introduces a new and successful concept for thermodynamics: nonequilibrium phase diagrams. This concept has been successfully applied to diamond synthesis. The book goes on to demonstrate how these diagrams lead to a complete new systematization of modern thermodynamics.

State-Selected and State-to-State Ion-Molecule Reaction Dynamics Part 1: Experiment Edited by Cheuk-Yiu Ng and Michael Baer "It contains a wealth of technical detail and experience and is a ‘must’ for anyone using, or contemplating using, position-sensitive detection methods." —Chemical Engineering Science Illustrated with eight in-depth studies, which shed light on the key experimental work being done in the field today, Part 1 of State-Selected and State-to-State Ion-Molecule Reaction Dynamics is a well-organized look at the experimental side of this highly useful and emerging chemical specialty. Part 1’s progressive coverage includes: a comprehensive review of the theory and application of inhomogeneous rf fields; the application of multiphoton ionization for the preparation of reactant ion states; the conceptual and practical aspects of a multicoincidence technique; and the experimental results obtained using the photoionization and differential reactivity methods. 1992 (0-471-53258-4) 704 pp. State-Selected and State-to-State Ion-Molecule Reaction Dynamics Part 2: Theory Edited by Michael Baer and Cheuk-Yiu Ng Using clear illustrative examples culled from up-to-date research, Part 2: Theory makes the theory fundamental to state-to-state reaction dynamics not only understandable, but relevant to every day experimental work. Focusing exclusively on the theory of charge transfer processes during an atom (ion)-molecule (ion) collision, the book examines the different attitudes for treating the potential energy surfaces which govern the motion of the interacting atoms and ions and the reaction dynamics of these particles. The book also uses a variety of approaches, from the pure quantum mechanical approach, various semiclassical approaches to several statistical approaches, to address key issues in reaction dynamics. 1992 (0-471-53263-0) 576 pp. Advances in Chemical Physics Volume 84 Edited by I. Prigogine and Stuart A. Rice Volume 84 of this heralded series offers readers a detailed, up-to-date look at a host of important issues in chemical physics, including: the collisional time-correlation function approach to molecular energy transfer; molecular theory of liquid phase vibrational energy relaxation; electron degradation in molecular substances; and simulation of nonlinear electronic spectroscopy in the condensed phase. 1993 (0-471-58726-5) 560 pp.

The contents of this book stems from three different objectives. First, it is an introduction to the basic principles and techniques of Landau's theory, which is intended for teaching purposes. A second purpose of the book provides the practical methods for applying Landau's theory to complex systems. The last objective of the book is to incorporate the developments which have arisen in the last fifteen years from the extensive application of the theory to a variety of physical systems.
