About the Authors
  • Soft condensed matter physics relies on a fundamental understanding at the interface between physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering for a host of materials and circumstances that are related to, but outside, the traditional definition of condensed matter physics. Featuring contributions from leading researchers in the field, this book uniquely discusses both the contemporary experimental and computational manifestations of soft condensed matter systems. From particle tracking and image analysis, novel materials and computational methods, to confocal microscopy and bacterial assays, this book will equip the reader for collaborative and interdisciplinary research efforts relating to a range of modern problems in nonlinear and non-equilibrium systems. It will enable both graduate students and experienced researchers to supplement a more traditional understanding of thermodynamics and statistical systems with knowledge of the techniques used in contemporary investigations. Color versions of a selection of the figures are available at www.cambridge.org/9780521115902.

    • The most current discussion of the state-of-the-art in soft condensed matter systems
    • Offers guidance for researchers in mathematics, chemistry and biology who collaborate with physicists on interdisciplinary research
    • Ideal for readers wishing to supplement an understanding of thermodynamics and statistical systems with knowledge of the techniques used in contemporary investigations
