About this book

This set of survey talks presented to graduate students serves as a thorough exposition of the subject. The study of complex fluids (with internal structure) is important for theoretical purposes but also, and maybe even more so, for applied research. The reader will find papers on colloid mixtures, the structure of DNA mesophases, ferrofluids, chain dynamics, liquid crystals, computer simulations of macromolecules, fluidization, emulsions, relaxations and many other related topics.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Delivered with insight and clarity, this book deserves a spot on the shelf of any ski devotee and winter mountaineer. [It] presents a collection of ideas that has something to offer each time it's opened." Linda Crockett, Education Director, Professional Ski Instructors of America

"This skier and physicist found it a pleasure to read about the history of skiing and to have a well-written book on the physics of snow, equipment, and skiing techniques." Ernest M. Henley, Physics Department, University of Washington
