About this book

The book focuses on the main physical ideas and mathematical methods of the microscopic theory of fluids, starting with the basic principles of statistical mechanics. The detailed derivation of results is accompanied by explanation of their physical meaning. The same approach refers to several specialized topics of the liquid state, most of which are recent developments, such as: a perturbation approach to the surface tension, an algebraic perturbation theory of polar nonpolarizable fluids and ferrocolloids, a semi-phenomenological theory of the Tolman length and some others. The book addresses researchers as well as graduate students in physics and chemistry with research interests in the statistical physics of fluids.

Reviews

From the reviews of the first edition:

"The book provides a good presentation of the fundamental theory in the context of its applications to concrete examples." (Mathematical Reviews 2002j)

"This book consists of 14 chapters and analyzes the fundamental problems of statistical physics of fluids. … This book may be useful for advanced graduate students and or researchers that are working in other fields of physics and mechanics." (Oleg A. Sinkevich, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 976, 2002)
