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. "Soft matter" is a unique series of books that strongly stresses the interdisciplinary character of this thriving field of research. The first volume offers a detailed description of the physical aspects of polymers, such as polymer dynamics in melts, and complex structure and. Is Page to Is Page to Issue 9, Page to
(K. M. Salikhov, Applied Magnetic Resonance, Vol. 27 (), ) "This monography on soft condensed matter originates from a series of lectures given by the authors . The book is clearly written by two world leading experts of the field, it is an excellent basis for a . Communications in Soft Matter contain novel scientific work of such importance and interest that rapid publication is required. Communications are concise and should not exceed four journal pages (~ words) in length; they may be accompanied by supplementary material. Communications start with a. This 2 volume reference work, split into 4 parts, presents detailed discussions of many of the major techniques commonly used as well as some of those in current development for studying and manipulating soft matter. Soft Matter encompasses a wide range of systems of varying components,including synthetic and biological polymers, colloids, and amphiphiles. The distinguishing features of these systems is their characteristic size, which is much larger than that of their atomic counterparts, and their characteristic energy, which is much smaller.
