Physics of Fluids in Microgravity

1st Edition

Rodolfo Monti
January 10, 2002

In a microgravity experiment, the conditions prevalent in fluid phases can be substantially different from those on the ground and can be exploited to improve different processes. Fluid physics research in microgravity is important for the advancement of all microgravity scients: life, material,...

Hyper-Structured Molecules III

1st Edition

Hiroyuki Sasabe
November 22, 2001

Hyper-Structured Molecules are topologically well-defined molecules in two or three dimensions, expected to show novel quantum effects in the molecular sequences. This book covers molecular designs of dendrimers, oligomers, hyperbranched polymers and/or high spin systems, molecular organizations...

Physics of Materials

1st Edition

Y. Quere
June 23, 1998

Few areas of science are as interdisciplinary as materials science. Chemistry, physics, mechanical engineering, and mathematics each play a part within it. The role of physics is to describe the objects, effects and phenomena at different scales (micro-, meso-, and macroscopic) as precisely as...

Physical Chemistry for the Biomedical Sciences

1st Edition

S.R. Logan
May 27, 1998

This is an introductory text for students which will bring them up to speed ready for first-year university level physical chemistry. The text begins by looking at atoms and their structure, and goes on to study different phases of matter and relates them to forces acting between molecules. As the...
