Intermolecular and Surface Forces (Google eBook)
This is an advanced textbook in applied physics and materials science that focuses on the theory and applications of biomaterials. The new edition adds two new chapters on time-dependent and non-equilibrium interactions as well as a computation chapter.
· Covers all aspects of intermolecular and interparticle forces both at the fundamental and applied levels
· Provides a multidisciplinary approach by addressing phenomena from different fields
· New chapters concentrate on: Non- Equilibrium and Time-Dependent Interactions, Force-Measuring Techniques, Friction and Lubrication Forces, Soft and Biological Structures, as well as Dynamic Bio-Interactions
