Slow Relaxations and Nonequilibrium Dynamics in Condensed Matter

by

Slow Relaxations and Nonequilibrium Dynamics in Condensed Matter Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Intended for graduate students in physics and chemistry, this book touches on granular matter, protein folding, phase separating and evolution kinetics. Taking glasses as a central theme, it presents the problem of slow dynamics from several angles, a ubiquitous feature in condensed matter, mechanics and biological physics. Some of the best established workers in the field present different theoretical and experimental approaches to the subject.
